Location: Sproul 912

Helena Taberna is a Spanish director of a number of noteworthy films such as Yoyes (2000) and La buena nueva (2008) and groundbreaking documentaries like Extranjeras (2003) and more recently, Nagore (2010), which centers on the problem of femicide. Her most recent film, Acantilado (2016), won an award at the Austin Film Festival, and she has received numerous awards for her other films.

On this day we will be screening her 2003 documentary “Extranjeras” and have a discussion on immigration in Spain then and now: what has changed, what stays the same. A particular attention will be paid to gender issues related to the topic.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Spanish & Portuguese, the Davis Humanities Institute, the Hemispheric Institute on the Americas, and the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies
