The LLCC Arts and Humanities Department invites the public to a free film and discussion series entitled, “Tuesday Nights at the Movies.” The first film showing will be of “Lone Star” tonight at 6 p.m. in Menard Hall, Room 2209.
Oct. 9: “Lone Star” (1996) – Set in a fictional Texas border town called Frontera, “Lone Star” explores the intersections among cultures and families who are struggling to come to terms with their pasts, relationships and identities. As personal and sometimes conflicting narratives unfold, so do the details surrounding a local mystery that one man is determined to solve. What he finds ultimately opens a pathway to acceptance and healing.
Other films in the series will include “Enemy” (2013) on Nov. 13, “Silence” (2016) on Feb. 12, and “Born Into Brothels: Calcutta’s Red Light Kids” (2004) on March 19. Read more about these films.
The films will be hosted by Dr. Deborah Brothers, John Paul Jaramillo and Cara Swafford, professors of English; Joseph Hoff, professor of Spanish; and LLCC students.
