CineCulture presents award-winning film ‘Güeros’ March 4

Fresno State’s CineCulture film series continues with a presentation of the award-winning film “Güeros” at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 4, in the Leon S. and Pete P. Peters Educational Center in the Student Recreation Center (Woodrow and Shaw avenues, west of Save Mart Center). “Güeros” tells the story of two college students, Sombra and Santos, during the 1999 National Autonomous University of Mexico student strike. The unexpected arrival of Sombra’s younger brother Tomás, nicknamed the ‘guero’ (fair-skinned), moves the group to find a legendary Mexican folk rock singer during a journey of self-discovery. The 111-minute, Spanish-language film with English subtitles received five top honors at the 2015 Ariel Awards, Mexico’s equivalent of the Academy Awards. Dr. Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval, dean of the College of Arts and Humanities, will lead a post-film discussion of the free, public screening that is co-sponsored by the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures. Parking is free on weekends and after 4 p.m. on Fridays. INFO: Dr. Mary Husain at mhusain@csufresno.edu or visit the CineCulture website. Film trailer.
