The QEP Project and the Spanish program, department of Literature and Languages, are hosting a series of films this spring semester through Spanish Film Club by PRAGDA and the Embassy of Spain in Washington D.C. The films will be in Spanish with English subtitles in THE CLUB (Student Center) at 5:30 pm.

The film for today will be EVEN THE RAIN (También la lluvia, 2011) by Icíar Bollaín (104 min).

SINOPSIS:
Filmmaker Sebastian (Gael García Bernal) and his cynical producer Costa (Luis Tosar) arrive in Cochabamba, Bolivia to make a film about Columbus’s voyage to the New World and the subjugation of the indigenous population. Just as filming begins, the natives face a crisis when the government privatizes the water company and prices skyrocket. Daily protests erupt and the local man cast as a rebellious sixteenth century Taino chief, also becomes a leader in the water hike protests. Spanish submission for the 2012 Best Foreign-Language Academy Award.

The Spanish Film Club series was made possible with the support of Pragda, and the Embassy of Spain in Washington DC, Spain-USA Foundation. Special thanks to the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain.

* (Remember that there will be Spanish&Portuguese conversation/tertulia & Bate Papo at 4,30pm if you want to join us and practice before the film. More information contact maria.lamarque@tamuc.edu)
