Film Screening: "Before Night Falls"

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month: The Passion of Hispanics in the Arts

  • CostFree

This is a richly imagined journey into the life and writings of brilliant Cuban author and exile Reinaldo Arenas portrayed by Javier Bardem. It spans the whole of Arenas' life, from his rural childhood and his early embrace of the Revolution to the persecution he would later experience as a writer in Castro's Cuba; from his departure from Cuba in the Mariel Harbor exodus of 1980 to his exile in the United States. Dr. Hayden Carron, Associate Professor and Director of Spanish at High Point University, will give a brief presentation before the screening.
