Latin American/Latinx Film Festival: La Yuma
September 23 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The University of Central Florida’s School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs is hosting the second 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. Nicaraugua’s first full-length feature in 20 years, La Yuma, tells the story of a young woman who dreams of transcending her bleak life in Managua by becoming a boxer. Looking beyond the meager possibilities, she finds solace and hope in her training and falls in love with a middle-class journalism student. This film is in Spanish with English subtitles. The film will be followed by a discussion led by the director Florence Jaugey and scholars Dr. Yovanna Pineda and Maria Cristina Santana-Rogers.
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.
