Virtual Film Screening: Talk to Her

Part of Research Streams: An Artist-Selected Film Series

Thursday, April 29, 2021 ● 6 pm

Virtual Event

Join us for a virtual screening of a film selected by artist Esperanza Cortés for its relationship to the themes of Comunidades Visibles: The Materiality of Migration

In Talk to Her, after a chance encounter at a theater, two men, Benigno and Marco, meet at a private clinic where Benigno works. Lydia, Marco's girlfriend and a bullfighter by profession, has been gored and is in a coma. It so happens that Benigno is looking after another woman in a coma, Alicia, a young ballet student. The lives of the four characters will flow in all directions, past, present and future, dragging all of them towards an unsuspected destiny.


Please register online. Registered participants will receive a link to join this virtual event the morning of the program.
