Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month Events – 2014

September 26, 5:30-7:30 (GB244) – Film showing and post-film conversation facilitated by Jeff Janowick (LCC Professor of History). “In the Time of the Butterfliesis based on the true story of the Mirabal sisters and their involvement in the resistance to the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic. Three of the four sisters joined the opposition and were known as the “Mariposas” (butterflies). Their leadership in the movement led to their eventual execution on the orders of Trujillo in 1960. Outrage at their murders led to the assassination of Trujillo six months later.

The film is based on the novel by Julia Alvarez, which was nominated for the 1994 National Book Critics Circle Award, and was chosen by the National Endowment for the Arts as a selection for its community-wide reading program, the Big Read.

October 10, 5:30 – 7:30 (TBD) –   Film showing and post-film conversation facilitated by Monica Del Castillo (LCC Counselor) and Ana Woehr (LCC Academic Advisor).  “Strawberry and Chocolate” takes place in Havana Cuba in 1979.  David (Vladmir Cruz) is a university student who meets Diego (Jorge Perugorria), a gay artist unhappy with the Castro regime’s attitude toward the LGBT community as well as the censored conceptualization of culture.  David’s homophobic classmate, Miguel (Francisco Gattorno) plans to use David to spy on Diego, a person whom they see as aberrant and dangerous to the Communist cause; Diego, for his part initiates the friendship with sexual intentions.

November 13, 6:00-7:45 (GB244) “Cuba, the Pearl of the Caribbean”, journey to the forbidden island, with LCC faculty Jeff Janowick, Michelle Detering, and Monica Del Castillo.  Join us on a cultural adventure that will surely delight your senses with pictures and personal stories.  You will experience Cuba through the eyes of educators traveling in a government sanctioned educational group, as well as through the eyes of an immigrant who returned home after 45 years in the U.S.
