The Hispanic Film Series offered by the Missouri S&T arts, languages, and philosophy department will continue this February with a screening of the 2016 film “Delicate Balance.”
The screening, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, in Room 104 Physics Building, located at 1315 N. Pine St. on the Missouri S&T campus. The film will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles.
“Delicate Balance” focuses on an interview with Jose “Pepe” Mujica, the former president of Uruguay who gained notoriety on the world stage for living a modest lifestyle, including giving away most of his presidential salary. . The film’s director, Guillermo García López, connects Mujica’s ideas about modern society to three stories: a Japanese salaryman in Tokyo, a sub-Saharan community trying to cross the borders into Europe and a family evicted from their own home in Spain.
The next film in the series, “The Future Perfect,” will be screened on March 7.
The Hispanic Film Festival is supported by the Spanish Film Club, an initiative of Latin American and Spanish film distributor PRAGDA, which offers grants to help high schools and universities experience the best in contemporary Spanish and Latin American cinema; and by Missouri S&T’s College of Arts, Sciences, and Business and the arts, languages and philosophy department.
