International Film Series: Spanish Film "Life is to Whistle"

November 15, 2017 - 6:00pm
Chandler-Ullmann Auditorium

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and Library and Technical Services presents the final film in the International Film Series, a spanish film entitled Life is to Whistle.

Wednesday November 15th at 6:00pm

“Like so many characters in Latin American literature, the three major characters in Fernando Perez's lush, hallucinatory film Life Is to Whistle walk around with an awareness of the supernatural that simultaneously inspires and oppresses them…. The director's master stroke is his portrayal of their internal conflicts as a metaphor for the political and economic anxieties gripping Cuba in the twilight of the Castro era. Life Is to Whistle … has many charms. Its surrealist imagery, inspired by Magritte paintings, lends it a thread of visual zaniness…”
Stephen Holden, The New York Times.

This event is free and open to the Lehigh Community.

Authentic snacks will be served after the film.
