Spanish-Language Film Series

Spanish-Language Film Series: Pelo Malo/Bad Hair (2013) (Unrated) 93 min.


Wednesday October 12, 2016
6:45 PM
What’s it like to be a child in Latin America? Join us this fall as the library marks National Hispanic Heritage Month 2016 with three movies exploring these themes (as well as how children both here and abroad experience poverty, crime, and war.) Tonight's movie from Venezuela is Pelo Malo (Bad Hair).

Part of our Growing Up in Latin America theme, this “rare look into Latin American race relations” (NPR), identity politics, and homophobia, features Junior, a 9-year-old living in a poor neighborhood in Caracas. School is about to start, and he has to have his picture taken. Junior becomes obsessed with straightening his “pelo malo,” which elicits a tidal wave of homophobic panic in his hard-working mother. Ultimately, this “strong, moving” movie explores how Venezuelans (and Latinos in general) see themselves, and how they see their future.

All movies are subtitled in English and will start at 6:45pm, and light refreshments will be provided.

¡Nos vemos pronto! (See you soon!)
