Next Cineclub movie is April 7

The Department of Modern and Classical Languages announces the next Cineclub movie for spring 2014. All showings are on Mondays at 7 p.m. in the student lounge of St. Edward’s Hall. Contact Dr. Kyle Black at for more information.

April 7 — “Un cuento chino,” the 2011 film directed by  Sebastián Borensztein, details how, in Buenos Aires, the bitter and methodic Roberto is a lonely man and the owner of a hardware store. One day, Roberto sees a Chinese named Jun being expelled from a taxi while he is watching the landing of airplanes in the airport. The comedy stars Ricardo Darín.

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 have English subtitles. In addition to viewing the films, participants are invited exchange ideas related to the films and their underlying socio-cultural contexts.
