01/23/2020 -  Italian Film: A Casa Tutti Bene (There Is No Place Like Home)
An unexpected storm strands a family, gathered together to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of two elderly parents, Pietro and Alba, on the small island of Ischia in Southern Italy. The numerous relatives are forced to live together under the same roof for two days and two nights with no way out. The lives of the siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews, become ineluctably intertwined, lingering between a past which rehashes old and unforgotten disputes, a present which rekindles unresolved conflicts, and a future which appears to be uncertain for everyone. The island morphs into a labyrinth of passion and everyone must reckon with their own personal, sentimental, family, or professional circumstances.
Gabriele Muccino, Italy, 2018, 105m

After his wife’s death, the Professor lives isolated from the world in the Nevada desert, near Area 51. He supposedly works on a top-secret project for the US government, but in actuality, he spends his days on the couch, listening to the sound of the Universe. His only contact with the outside world is Stella, who organizes alien-themed weddings for tourists on the prowl for extra-terrestrials. One day the Professor receives a message from Naples: his dying brother is entrusting him with his two children so that they may live with him in America. Anita (16) and Tito (7) arrive expecting the legendary bright lights of LasVegas, but instead, they find themselves in the middle of nowhere, in the hands of their nutty uncle and in a weird, mysterious place where aliens are said to live…

In Italian with English subtitles.

01/14/2020 - Documentary Film: Jeronimo - The Untold Tales of Koreans in Cuba
Jeronimo is a documentary about Korean Cubans who fought for Korea’s independence as well as in the Cuban revolution. Director and UC San Diego alumnus Joseph Juhn will speak about the film. Q&A to follow the screening.

In 1905, 1,033 Koreans were sold as indentured servants to landlords in Yucatán, Mexico. Some of them moved to Cuba in 1921 in search of a better life, only to face more hard labor and discrimination. Jeronimo Lim Kim was born there in such a time of uncertainty. He joined the Cuban Revolution with his law school classmate Fidel Castro, became an accomplished government official in the Castro regime and even worked with Che Guevara. In his later life, after his first and only visit to his homeland in 1995, he rediscovered his ethnic roots and spent his final years reconstructing a Korean Cuban identity and community in Cuba.
