Lawrence University Latin American and Spanish Film Festival


Films from Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean will screen at this year's edition of the festival. Here's one highlight:

Antes que cante el gallo (Before the Rooster Crows), Puerto Rico
Carmín's dream of moving to the city with her mother vanishes when she moves to the US with her new husband. Now a teenager, Carmín grows and lives in Barranquitas, a mountainous village in the center of Puerto Rico, with her grandmother, a tough and conservative woman. The arrival of her father after long years in prison eases Carmín's profound sadness. The relationship with him, however, brings its own ambiguity and complexities. Followed with Q&A with director, Arí Maniel Cruz.

Appleton, WI: April 26 - 30 at Lawrence University.  Free admission.
