Missouri S&T’s arts, languages, and philosophy department will show the fourth film in its Hispanic Film Series, “Spider Thieves,” this April.
The screening is free and open to the public and begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in Room 104 Physics Building. The Physics Building is located at 1315 N. Pine St. on the Missouri S&T campus. The film will be presented in Spanish with English subtitles.
“Spider Thieves” is inspired by a true story and follows the tale of three teenage girls living in modern-day Chile. The girls live in a shanty town and make a plan to scale buildings to steal from expensive apartments. The “spider thieves” just want the trendy items they’ve seen on TV, but word eventually spreads and they earn their nickname.
The final film in the series, “La Yuma,” will be screened on April 25.
The Hispanic Film Festival is supported by the Spanish Film Club, an initiative of Latin American and Spanish distributor PRAGDA, which offers grants to help high schools and universities experience the best in contemporary Spanish and Latin cinema; and by Missouri S&T’s College of Arts, Sciences and Business and the arts, languages, and philosophy department.
