In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, UCF is proud to present the 2nd Latin American/Latinx Film Festival. The film this week is Alice Junior (Alice Júnior). Portuguese with English Subtitles. With Anne Celestino Mota, Emmanuel Rosset, Thais Schier, Surya Amitrano.
Alice Júnior is a carefree, spoiled trans YouTuber with everything she could ask for: an apartment in a cool beach town, a loving dad, her own advice vlog, an almost-win Teen Top Model, and a cat named Rhinoceros. So, when her father announces their move from the vibrant Brazilian city of Recife to a small, conservative town in the south and to an old-fashioned Catholic school, Alice has to prepare herself for the prudery and small-mindedness she will confront there.
The Spanish Film Club series was made possible with the support of Pragda, SPAIN Arts & Culture, and the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain. It is sponsored by the College of Sciences, the School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs, the Department of English, Department of History, Modern Languages and Literatures/Latin American Studies, Puerto Rico Research Hub, and Women's and Gender Studies.
