Brazilian Film Screening: Almost Brothers (2004)

Tuesday, October 2, 2018 - 9:15am to 11:30am
Event Location: 
Northwest Regional Center

This poignant film is the story of two men: white, middle-class Miguel and black favela (slum) dweller Jorge who meet as boys through their fathers’ passion for music. Their friendship is renewed during a lengthy incarceration in the mid -1970s.  Director Lucia Murat offers a commentary on the lowest rung of society in contemporary Rio de Janeiro when, as adults, Miguel and Jorge, one a government official and the other a drug lord, respectively, discover that their lives have more in common than they ever realized. This film was the official selection of the Toronto International Film Festival Winner—Best Film Special Jury Award—Marseille Festival. The director, Lucia Murat participated in the student and guerilla movements against the military dictatorship in Brazil in the 1960-1970s.  She was imprisoned and tortured by military agents; that experience exerted a strong influence on her work.

Please note, this screening will be held in Room 216 at NWRC.

Latinx Heritage Month Luncheon (By Invitation Only)

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 11:30am to 1:00pm
Event Location: 
The Great Hall (S2-19)

Theme: “Latinx in the United States: Past and Present”

Featured Keynote Speaker: Pedro A. Regalado, Ph.D. Candidate in American Studies, Yale University; CCP Alumnus ’11

How has our evolving Latinx community resisted oppressive forces in the past? And how has it established bonds of kinship in the process while providing future generations a roadmap for survival and happiness? Regalado’s address will tackle the pressing issues that the nation’s Latinx community face today by providing some retrospect on how we have arrived at this moment of crisis and urgency, and how we might move forward.

Pedro A. Regalado is a Ph.D. Candidate in American Studies at Yale University and a 2011 graduate of Community College of Philadelphia with an A.A. in Secondary Education/History. His research focuses on the intersection of race, immigration, capitalism, and the built environment during the 20th century. The working title of his dissertation is “Where Angels Fear to Tread: Latinx Work and the Making of New York.” Most recently, he was awarded the Jefferson Scholars National Fellowship. In 2017, the Society for American City & Regional Planning History awarded his paper, “Fixed Capital:  Building Transition and Drug Capitalism in New York City, 1961-1997,” the best student research paper at the 17th National Conference on Planning History. Regalado’s work has been featured in The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia, and Public Seminar. He also has forthcoming publications in The Journal of Urban History and Ohio Valley History.
