The Hispanic Film Series offered by the Missouri University of Science and Technology arts, languages, and philosophy department will continue this February with a viewing of the comic satire “3 Beauties.”

The film, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, in Room G-5 of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building on the Missouri S&T campus. The film will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles.

“3 Beauties” tells the story of working single mother Perla who is desperate to make her eldest daughter, Carolina, into a Venezuelan beauty queen. Perla is willing to do whatever it takes for her daughter to become a star. Along the way her younger daughter, Estefania, gets caught up in the fight for the crown. The film explores the dark side of a culture obsessed with beauty and doing whatever it takes to make it to the top.

Released in 2014, the film is a production of Venezuela.

The next film in the series, “Here and There,” will be screened at 7 p.m. Friday, March 10, in Room 104 Physics Building on the Missouri S&T campus.
