Sorry-- on account of me- John Morris- this posting is a little out of date. Stay tuned for more info on this channel.

Living the good life in Pittsburgh is the art of keeping your ears open for all the *free* events the universities bring here.

This week, University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Germanic Language and Literature hosts its third Wednesday of avant-garde film from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
A “Communist classic” says Professor Randall Halle of 1932’s “Kuhle Wampe” from Germany—showing TONIGHT. The series is Wednesdays (for a few more weeks) at 7:30pm, at David Lawrence Hall Room 205, 3942 Forbes Avenue, Pitt campus.

This Friday, January 19th at 7:00 pm, three Spanish-language films from Latin America will be shown also on Pitt campus, at Frick Fine Arts Auditorium (behind the Carnegie Main Library). The Pittsburgh premier of “Las Fronteras de la Coca” (2003) from Bolivia will run 60 minutes and two 30-minute shorts will also be shown. Visiting Professor Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui will present—this is part of the AMIGOS DEL CINE LATINOAMERICANO series.

February 15-17th there’ll be a Chinese film festival sponsored by the East Asian Languages and Literatures Department at Pitt, held at Alumni Hall, Fifth Avenue in Oakland. Seventh Floor, all shows free. More information - here.
