January 27: Road to La Paz (2015)
Discussant: Francisco Varone (Director)

Sebastian is 35-years-old and unemployed, with only his father’s old Peugeot 505 to his name. When fate brings him a man in search of a ride, Sebastian sees no other choice but to take the opportunity. The man is Jalil, an elderly devout Muslim, and his destination is La Paz, the capitol of Bolivia some 2,000 miles from Buenos Aires. Both men are at a crossroads, and the journey of La Paz not only takes them to the north but also places them on a touching and often funny road of self-discovery. In Spanish with English subtitles, 92 minutes. https://vimeo.com/139838175?ref=em-share

Sponsors: The Department of Chicano & Latin American Studies and the Department of Political Science
