"El viajero inmóvil"
Admission: Free and open to the public
Attend a screening of "'El viajero inmóvil," sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. The film is Director Tomás Piard's take on José Lezama Lima's "Paradiso." Piard's adaptation of Lezama's genre-bending and exploratory text takes a refreshing approach to the original work's intimate, neo-baroque aesthetic. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion led by Lezama specialists Dr. César Salgado and doctoral students Ingrid Robyn and Omar Vargas.
