The Fresno State CineCulture Series kicks off its spring 2018 lineup of film screenings with “Extra-Terrestrials (Extraterrestres)” at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26. The CineCulture Club promotes cultural awareness through film and post-screening discussions.
First-time director Carla Cavina, of Puerto Rico, will discuss the film following the screening. “Extra-Terrestrials“ explores the sense of being alien and alone.
In Spanish with English subtitles, the film is an hour and 50 minutes. “Extra-Terrestrials” is sponsored by the Spanish program, the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures and the Department of Communication at Fresno State.
With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, Korean director Kogonada’s debut film, “Columbus,” unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation. In English and Korean with English subtitles, the film is an hour and 44 minutes.
More information about the films is available on the College of Arts and Humanities blog. The full spring screening lineup will be announced soon.
