Film Series

The Portuguese Film Series started during the Fall 2010 under the coordination of Professor Celeste Mann.  We are offering approximately four titles each semester.  We always attempt to keep a balance between recent productions and films from the past that become more and more significant with time.

The Series tries film productions from Brazil and other Portuguese speaking countries.  We are always looking for quality titles from other countries that are hard to dind or were overlooked by distributors.

Our extracurricular activity attracts students and faculty related with the study of Portuguese.  They come to enjoy good quality films the way it should be: on a big screen, in a dark room and surrounded by a responsive audience.

All Films are shown in Portuguese with English subtitles.

Stay alert for postings and don't miss an opportunity to get acquainted with a highly creative and dynamic portion of world cinema!

For more information, please contact Professor Celeste Mann, coordinator of the Portuguese Film Series.
