The Film: Conducta (Behavior)
Friday, September 23, 2016
(2014, Ernesto Daranas 100 min, Spanish with English subtitles) Conducta is an award-winning, modern Cuban drama that follows the relationship between a teacher nearing retirement and her troubled but spirited student dealing with a drug-addicted mother. Conducta co-star Cuban actress Idalmis Garcia will discuss how the film reflects Cuban society today as compared to the ideals of the Cuban Revolution including the state of its much-lauded, but now threatened, educational system.
