Latin American/Latinx Film Festival: Before the Rooster Crows (Antes Que Cante el Gallo)

October 7 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The University of Central Florida’s School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs is hosting the sixth event in the “Latin American/Latinx Film Festival” to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. A series of films will be presented along with a Q&A with the directors of the films and scholars. This event is in person with a virtual participation option. The film tells the story of Carmin, a teenager who lives in Barranquitas, a mountainous village in the center of Puerto Rico, with her tough and conservative grandmother. Carmin dreams of moving to San Juan with her mother, but she is remarried and leaving for the United States without her. Then the arrival of her father after long years in prison eases Carmin’s profound sadness. The relationship with her father brings its own complexities and ambiguousness. Now, Carmin must learn to live between abandonment and carefulness. This film is in Spanish with English subtitles. A discussion with the director of the film Ari Maniel Cruz and Dr. Fernando Rivera of UCF will follow the screening.

UCF parking is by virtual permit; $5 before 5:30 p.m. and $3 after 5:30 p.m. Daily permits may park in any “D” parking lots and garages. For access to the virtual platform, registration is required. Funding for this series of film screenings and discussions is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the University of Central Florida. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
