International film series: "Yuli: The Carlos Acosta Story"
Time: 7:00pm
Location: Olin B Lecture Hall

The fall International Film Series — hosted by the Department of Modern Languages — continues with Yuli.

The story follows Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta, a legend in the dance world and the first black dancer to perform some of the most famous ballet roles. A dancer who did not want to dance. Yuli is the nickname given to Carlos Acosta by his father, Pedro, who considers him the son of Ogun, an African god and a fighter. As a child Yuli avoids discipline and education, learning from the streets of an impoverished and abandoned Havana. His father, knowing that his son has a natural talent for dance, sends him to the National Ballet School of Cuba. Despite his repeated escapes and initial poor behavior, the boy is inevitably drawn to the world of dance. Yuli begins to shape his legendary career from a young age by becoming the first black dancer to be cast in some of the most prestigious ballet roles in companies such as the Houston Ballet or the Royal Ballet in London.

The movie was written by Paul Laverty and Carlos Acosta, and directed by Icíar Bollaín.

(Spain/Cuba/UK/Germany, 2019, Biography/Drama/History, 111 min., NR)

International film series: "A Taxi Driver"
Time: 7:00pm
Location: Olin B Lecture Hall

The fall International Film Series — hosted by the Department of Modern Languages — continues with A Taxi Driver.

In this powerful true story set in 1980, a down-on-his-luck taxi driver from Seoul is hired by a foreign journalist who wants to go to the town of Gwangju for the day. He arrives to find a city under siege by the military government, with the citizens who are led by a determined group of college students, rising up to demand freedom.  What began as an easy fare becomes a life-or-death struggle in the midst of the Gwangju Uprising, a critical event in modern South Korea.

The movie was written by Yu-na Eom and directed by Hun Jang.

(Korea, 2017, Drama, 138 min, NR)
