All Day Film - Leona Leona is an intimate, insightful, and moving film that tells the story of a young Jewish woman from Mexico City who finds herself torn between her family and her forbidden love. Ripe with all the drama and interpersonal conflicts of a Jane Austen novel, watching her negotiate the labyrinth of familial pressure, religious precedent, and her own burgeoning sentiment is both painful and beautiful - there are no easy choices to be made and the viewer travels back and forth with her as she struggles with her heart to take the best path.

The pipa, a Chinese lute-like instrument, has a history of over 2,000 years, and Wu Man’s performance features music that ranges from traditional folk song, to 19th century pipa music, to contemporary pieces including her own composition, showcasing the instrument’s unique tonal qualities, and displaying her formidable playing skills. This event made possible by the Funes Fund for Arts and Events. Dr. Don Funes was a founding professor of the Visual and Performing Arts Program at CSUSM. Don’s wish was that all students would have opportunities to experience the arts. CSUSM Students: free. Community: Optional Donation. Faculty/Staff/Alumni: Optional Donation.
