Hispanic Heritage Film Series at Roesch Library

By Rachel Barnett

Roesch Library and Welcome Dayton will host a fall film series that includes a variety of films on Hispanic Heritage.  The events are free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited to 45 and is on a first come, first serve basis.  

Each film is PATH-point eligible for University of Dayton students and will be followed by a facilitated discussion of the film's content.  Students must stay for both the film screening and discussion to receive PATH credit.  

Thursday September 14 at 6:30pm in the Roesch Library Collab 

In the Shadows: Undocumented Immigration in America

All are welcome to participate in a film screening and facilitated discussion of "In the Shadows: Undocumented Immigration in America." This film explores why the immigration issue has become such a hot button topic with a modern day "Grapes of Wrath" story in which a family of undocumented immigrants from the jungle in Mexico journey to a dairy farm in the USA in search of a better life and a means to send money home to their struggling families.

All are welcome to participate in a film screening and facilitated discussion of "Visiones Episodes 3 and 4."

Even the Rain

All are welcome to participate in a film screening and facilitated discussion of "Even the Rain." Set in February and March of 2000, when real-life protests against the privatization of water rocked the nation, the film reflexively blurs the line between fiction and reality as it invites dialogue about Spanish imperialism while examining the personal belief systems of film crew members who arrive in Bolivia to make a revisionist film about the conquest of Latin America.
