    October 30, 2018, 7:00 PM

    This participatory film experience will be “conducted” by filmmaker Milton Guillén. In the once-prosperous industrial city of Maribor, Slovenia, anger over political corruption became unruly revolt.

NR / 100 min.

    The Fall 2018 Ethnographic Film Series explores politics, folktales, challenges, and tolerance through film. Discussions organized by the Department of Sociology and Anthropology will follow several of the films. The series is co-sponsored by Latin American Latino/a Studies and MECCPAC—a Dean of Students Diversity Initiative.

    The series is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology Liv Stone at 438-5850.
