Film Series: Southern District

2009. Bolivia. Dir: Juan Carlos Valdivia. With Ninón del Castillo. 108 min.


La Paz’s Zona Sur neighborhood has housed Bolivia’s affluent elite for generations. Here, a statuesque matriarch reigns over her indigenous servants and entitled children at a time of intense social change. This Sundance award-winner presents an eloquent chronicle of a patrician family’s final days.

Presented as part of The Spanish Film Club series with the support of Pragda, the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain, and its Program for Cultural Cooperation with U.S. Universities.

Tonight, September 13. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
