Hispanic Movie Night: “Birds of Passage”

6 PM, Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Math Auditorium (Macon Campus)

Presented by The School of Arts & Letters, The Department of Media, Culture, & the Arts, The Modern Language Program, and by the Francophone & Hispanic Movie Series.

MGA faculty, students, and the off-campus community are cordially invited to this semester’s Hispanic Movie Night on the 16th of October at 6 PM in the Math Auditorium. The Francophone & Hispanic Movie Series of The Modern Language Program is proud to present “Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano),” a magnificent, highly-entertaining epic from Colombia, which has received excellent reviews from critics and audiences from all over the world. As the film progresses, the audience will witness how long-cherished values such as honor, respect, and tradition of an indigenous tribe are destroyed by the decisions of individuals who find themselves mired in drug trafficking during the late 1960s and 1970s. This will be a rare opportunity to see this strongly, strongly recommended cinematic gem on a huge HD screen in the Math Auditorium.

Free and open to the public. A trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV0uWf72ZQw

NR but could be rated R for violence.

Refreshments will be served while they last. Many thanks to Dr. Mary Wearn for sponsoring this meaningful, multidisciplinary, and diversity-driven event.
