'Caliente' lineup for Hispanic
The events for Hispanic Heritage Month at Sacramento State
are hotter than ever with the campus premiere of the play S-E-X-Oh!,
a performance from Latino rock band Molotov and a screening of the acclaimed
Corrido de Cecilia Rios. Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated on campus
this year from Sept. 12 through Oct. 19, honors the cultures and traditions
of U.S. residents who trace their roots to Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The screenings of the movies El Corrido de Cecilia Rios and A
Girl's Life kick off the month, with a scheduled talk by film directors
Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and Dawn Valadez. El Corrido documents
the events surrounding the murder of a 15-year-old girl in a California
school, and shows her classmates' efforts to cope with her death and
speak about the problems of violence. A Girl's Life, which chronicles
the lives of four preteen girls from different cultural and economic
backgrounds, immediately follows. The films start at noon, Monday, Sept.
12 in the University Union Hinde Auditorium.
The film Escuela,
a documentary on a 13-year-old migrant girl's efforts to receive an
education, will be shown at noon, Sept. 15 in Library 1010.
