Event Details:

Film Screening - Albert Serra's "Story of my Death"

Famous lover Casanova, now long past his time, meets Count Dracula during a journey to Transylvania. Story of my Death is a dark and erotic retelling of their encounter, the Enlightenment ceding to Romanticism, akin to Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salò. Pigott Hall (Bldg. 260), Room 113, 4/20/18 6:30pm - 9:30pm.

Lecture - Albert Serra: “Paradigms of Change in Contemporary Cinema”

Claiming that Contemporary Cinema is currently in its most interesting creative moment since the 60s, laureate Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra will discuss its evolution throughout the 21st Century in terms of form, methodology and perception, as well as its future possibilities. Pigott Hall (Bldg. 260), Room 252, 4/23/18 4:00pm - 5:00pm.

Diada de Sant Jordi: Saint George's Catalan Cultural Festival

Right after Albert Serra's talk, come to celebrate the Day of the Book & Rose, a Catalan Cultural and Literary Festival, coinciding with the anniversary of Shakespeare's and Cervantes' death. There will be music, a live Poetry Recital, roses and books (with a raffle!). Oregon Courtyard, 5:00-6:30pm.
