Friday, October 3
Pelo malo (Bad Hair)
Directed by Mariana Rondón (Venezuela, 2013)
LaRose Digital Theatre, Koury Business Center, 6 p.m.
The slippery nature of identity — how it forms in us, the ways it tells us how we might want to look or who we desire — is at the heart of this feature film. At times harsh but often tender, Pelo malo exudes compassion for all involved, even Marta, whose concerns may be grounded in homophobic panic but whose desperation is almost palpable. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Sponsored by the Department of World Languages and Cultures, Elon's Schools of Arts and Sciences and Communications, Gender and LGBTQIA Center of Elon University, Pragda, Spain-USA Foundation and the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain
