Kent State University Presents Spanish Film Series

enter photo description
Kent State University will present a series of three recent
Spanish films on March 2 and 3.

Kent State University will present a series of three recent Spanish films on March 2 and 3. The films will be shown in the auditorium in the Schwartz Center (Room 177), and will be in Spanish with English subtitles. A discussion will follow each film. Admission is free and free parking is available at the Schwartz Center.

The films featured in this event include:

La Mujer Sìn Piano (Woman Without Piano) Friday, March 2, 7: 30 p.m.
In Javier Rebollo’s new comedy-drama set in Madrid, a married housewife without friends or social contacts decides to escape her boring life and gets caught in an unexpected dilemma. This original, charming film, in a surrealist mise en scene, won prizes at the San Juan Film Festival and the French Cinespaña festival.

Los Condenados (The Condemned) Saturday March 3, 2 p.m.
In this 2009 thriller by Isaki Lacuesta, an exiled Argentinean who has lived in Spain for more than 30 years receives a phone call from a former comrade. The friend begs him to come home to help find the remains of a political activist who disappeared during the dictatorship.

Paisito (Small Country) Saturday March 3, 7: 30 p.m.
This film by Ana Dièz is set in Uruguay, a “paisito” or little country. It recounts the events surrounding a coup that took place in 1973 shortly before the coups in Chile and Argentina. The film presents the overthrow of the government by the military and the eradication of the Tupamaros through the lens of two adults who meet 20 years after they first met as children. An intriguing and subtle film.

This Spanish film series is made possible with the support of the Spanish Ministry of Culture, the Kent State’s Institute for Applied Linguistics and the Department of History.

Fifty-two women will be honored at the the Women's Center's
annual Mothers, Mentors and Muses reception on March 6.

On Tuesday, March 6, the Women’s Center at Kent State University will host the annual Mothers, Mentors and Muses Scholarship Fundraiser reception at the Kent Student Center Ballroom at 5 p.m.

Fifty-two women from various Kent State departments will be honored at the event. This year's honorees are listed below.

The event honors women nominated in any of three roles: a mother – someone who has helped “birth” new ideas and thoughts in others and has also served as an overall nurturing individual; a mentor – an individual who has been both a role model and a trusted counselor to others; or a muse – an individual who has inspired both creativity and academic enthusiasm in others.

Previously, 88 Kent State women have been nominated and honored. This year, 2011 honoree Randi Schneider, Ph.D., will speak at the event.

The Women’s Center, which was established in 1996, has been focused on advancing women in their academic careers. Funds raised at the event will fund $500 scholarship awards for two Kent State University female students. This scholarship has benefitted 16 students since its introduction in 2003.

Registration deadline to attend the event is Feb. 29.
