Aurora Guerrero / 2011 / USA
Set in a predominately Mexican, immigrant neighborhood in Los Angeles, this is the coming of age story of Mosquita and Mari, two 15 year-old Chicanas growing up in immigrant households. Yolanda, an only child, delivers straight A’s and the hope of the American Dream while Mari, the eldest, shares economic responsibilities with her undocumented family who scrambles to make ends meet. As their friendship grows, a yearning to explore their strange yet beautiful connection surfaces. Soon, their relationship proves more complex and sensual than anticipated. Mounting pressures at home and school collide with their newfound connection, forcing them to choose between their obligations to others and staying true to themselves.
Date: Thursday, October 1
Time: 8-10 PM

1985. UK. Dir: Terry Gilliam. With Jonathan Pryce. 132 min. 35mm print.
A sheepish government peon with grand romantic dreams attempts to correct a simple paperwork error only to find himself hurled into a treacherous world of terrorism, torture, and plastic surgery. Elaborate production design, hysterical performances and manically kinetic direction mark a fantastical satire of bureaucracy gone wrong.
Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5

From Henry Prine ’18:
Meet Palestinians from Susiya and Umm al-Khair, West Bank. Join Fatma,
Hamoudi, Aysar, Eid, Nima, and Sadin for a conversation about their
lives in Palestine. They are not academics. They are living in
undocumented villages in the South Hebron Hills. These villages are
located in Area C, the part of the West Bank under full Israeli
control since 1993.
Expelled from their original land, Susiya, in 1986, these Palestinians
have been under constant threat of demolition by the state of Israel.
People stay up every night in case Caterpillar bulldozers ride up
accompanied by soldiers. Come listen to their stories, and join the
conversation that even a US Senator has. They are excited to meet you.
There will be food served. Thai food. Facebook event:

Are you concerned with food waste on campus? Are you passionate about decomposition? Are you tired of the three-question format for interest posts?
