Next Cineclub movie is Feb. 10


The Department of Modern and Classical Languages is pleased to announce the dates for Cineclub for spring 2014. All showings will be on Mondays at 7 p.m. in the student lounge of St. Edward’s Hall. Contact Dr. Kyle Black at kblack@smumn.edu for more information.

The Feb. 10 crime/drama/thriller from Argentina, “Nueve reinas” directed by Fabi├ín Bielinsky, is about two con artists who try to swindle a stamp collector by selling him a sheet of counterfeit rare stamps (the “nine queens”).

One of the main objectives of Cineclub is to provide an opportunity for the Saint Mary’s and Winona communities to enjoy some films in Spanish and Portuguese that may not typically be shown in local theaters. All films will have English subtitles. In addition to viewing the films, participants will be invited exchange ideas related to the films and their underlying socio-cultural contexts.
