The Hispanic Film Series offered by the Missouri S&T arts, languages, and philosophy department will continue this April with a viewing of the 2016 Chilean drama film “Neruda.”
The screening, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 5, in Room 199 Toomey Hall on the Missouri S&T campus. The film will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles.
“Neruda,” directed by Pablo Larraín, focuses on the life and writing of Pablo Neruda, a Nobel Prize-winning poet. “Neruda” is set in the late 1940s as an inspector searches for Neruda in his home nation of Chile after he has joined the Communist party. Now a fugitive in his own country, Neruda goes into hiding to evade capture by the authorities and to continue writing.
The final film in the series, “Don’t Call Me Son,” will be screened at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 26.
