Hispanic Film Festival Presented by Sigma Delta Pi
PARAISO (Paradise)
Thursday, October 1, 2015 Stevenson Hall 101 7:00 PM
Childhood sweethearts Carmen and Alfredo live a life of quiet bliss in Satelite, a sleepy suburb outside of Mexico City. When Alfredo is offered a promotion, the lovebirds make the move into the bustling metropolis. It’s a rude awakening for Carmen, who until now has not really worried about the fact that she and Alfredo are both overweight. After overhearing gossip about their bodies at a company party, she decides that it is time to swap donuts for salads, and urges Alfredo to join her in a weight-loss program. But when only one of them actually starts to slim down, a rift emerges in their relationship.
Chenillo / Mexico / 2014 / 105 min, Spanish with English subtitles.
A talkback by Dianne Feasley, registered dietitian, associate director, Illinois State University Campus Dining Services will follow the film.
Sigma Delta Pi, The Spanish Honor Society, is excited to present a Spanish Film Festival as part of the Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month. This event would not be possible without the sponsorship of MECCPAC and Latin American and Latino Studies Program.
