See famed director Arturo Ripstein on campus TODAY!

American University is proud and excited to host famed Spanish film director Arturo Ripstein on campus today at 5:30pm in the Letts Formal Lounge.

Ripstein has been active in the Spanish film industry for years, starting as an assistant to director Luis Buñuel and eventually directing his own feature films in 1965. If you’ve taken a Spanish film class, you’ve no doubt run across some of his films, including El lugar sin limites and Deep Crimson.

The event will include a panel discussion with Professors Lucy Grandas, Jeffrey Middents, Nuria Vilanova, and Brenda Werth (all friends of Media Services). This is a massively exciting opportunity to hear from a big name in world cinema. Come to the Letts Formal Lounge early to ensure you have a seat!
