The Hispanic Film Series will present the first film of the series, The Tenth Man, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 25, in Room 199 Toomey Hall. The film is an Argentinean comedy of 2016, presented in Spanish with English subtitles.

In the movie, Ariel returns to Buenos Aires to reconnect with his father, Usher, who has founded a charity foundation in Once, the city’s bustling Jewish district where Ariel spent his youth. In the process of trying to meet his father and getting entangled in his charitable commitments, Ariel also reconnects with his own Jewish roots. In this context, Ariel meets Eva, a volunteer for Usher’s charity. Eva’s radiant inner strength and independent spirit inspire Ariel to come to grips with the traditions that once divided him and his father and to rethink his own identity.

Dr. Jorge Porcel, associate professor of arts, languages and philosophy and organizer of the Hispanic Film Festival, received funding for the film series through PRAGDA, the U.S. Department of Education, S&T’s College of Arts, Sciences, and Business, and the arts, languages and philosophy department.
