    • Thurs Oct 18 - ¡Vámonos Con Pancho Villa! (Let's Go With Pancho Villa, 1936)

      Directed by Fernando de Fuentes

      Based on the novel ¡Vámonos con Pancho Villa! written in 1931 by writer and journalist Rafael Felipe Muñoz. The novel was later adapted for the screen by Muñoz, director Fernando de Fuentes, and poet Xavier Villaurrutia, who at one time was the teacher of Nobel Prize winner for Literature Octavio Paz. Considered one of the great epic films about the Mexican Revolution, ¡Vámonos con Pancho Villa! is the third film of the trilogy made by de Fuentes depicting a critical view of the reality of armed conflict and its effects on people. Prisionero 13 (1933) and El compadre Mendoza (1934) are the other two films made by de Fuentes as part of his revolution trilogy. His epic style was compared by critics to that of legendary director John Ford. Doroteo Arango, known as Francisco Villa, is portrayed without adulation in a story about six friends who join the Mexican Revolution and give their total committment to it and its charismatic and multi-faceted leader. Actor Domingo Soler gives a strong portrayal of Villa in beautifully- accomplished black and white photography by Jack Draper and Gabriel Figueroa.

      New subtitled 35mm print created by the Academy Film Archive of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences™, Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival, and the Department of Film and Electronic Arts at California State University, Long Beach.

    • Thurs Oct 25 - Julia, Toda En Mi (Julia, All In Me, 2002)

      Directed by Ivonne Belén

      A poetic journey through the life and work of Puerto Rican poet Julia Burgos, considered one of the most prolific figures in Puerto Rican literature. This film's script is based on a series of letters that Burgos sent to her sister Consuelo during her voluntary exile in New York and Cuba between 1940 and 1953. Major historical events including the Second World War, the Spanish Civil War, Puerto Rico's political upheaval, and social movements that occurred in New York, Cuba and Europe form a background to this very personal account of a poet's life. The documentary has actors from Puerto Rico, including Benicio del Toro and Jacobo Morales, reading on camera with music composed by Raymond Torres-Santos.

      Presentation by Professor Victor Rodriguez of the Chicano and Latino Studies Department.

      100 minutes, Spanish with English subtitles.
