Latin American/Latinx Film Festival: A Bruddah's Mind (Cabeça De Nêgo)

Friday, October 14, 2022 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

This film is part of the 2nd Latin American/Latinx Film Festival. This film is in Portuguese with English subtitles. With Lucas Limeira, Nicoly Mota, Jennifer Joingley, Mayara Braga.

Synopsis: After Saulo's reaction to a racial insult from a classmate, his teachers describe him as a young delinquent and swiftly attempt to expel him ignoring his usually calm and articular demeanor. Outraged, Saulo refuses to leave the school until justice is done. His solitary occupation ends up challenging the school's board and mobilizes the entire community. The students did not anticipate, however, the principal's extreme reaction. Echoime events from around the world, A Bruddah's Mind effectively calls out racism, misogyny, and militarism. It reminds us about the importance of activism, political engagement, and the sacrifices that come with it.

The Spanish Film Club series was made possible with the support of Pragda, SPAIN Arts & Culture and the Secretary of State of Culture of Spain. It is sponsored by the College of Sciences, the School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs, the Department of English, the Department of History, Modern Languages & Literatures/Latin American Studies, the Puerto Rico Research Hub, and Women's and Gender Studies.
