Photos and Story by

On Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 3 p.m., in ST 101, Sylvania Campus, the film, “Guantanamera,” will be shown. It is the second installment of the Spanish-language film series hosted monthly by the Sylvania Spanish department and EdLa (Educación Latina, the Sylvania Latino Student Club). The film, which offers English subtitles, will be followed by an informal discussion. The film is free and open to all PCC faculty, staff and students!

“Guantanamera” is directed by renowned Cuban filmmaker Tomas Guiterrez Alea (“Strawberry and Chocolate”). Couched as a road story with a Cuban twist, the film “tosses love, farce and social comment into the broth to create a pleasing combination of romance and criticism of the Cuban order.”
