"Amores Peros and Crime in Mexico"
JOHN KRANIAUSKAS, University of London Professor John Kraniauskas teaches at the University of London.  He is a specialist in Latin American literary and cultural studies, with
particular interests in relations between state and cultural forms.  In 1992 and 1995 he was a Visiting Associate Professor at the Universidad Iberoamericana, and in 1996 at Duke University.  /Amores perros/ is a Mexican work of urban neo-naturalism with all the populist scope and
will-to-representativity of a moving three-panelled mural.  In this talk, Kraniauskas will discuss each of the film's three parts with a view to understanding their autonomous compositional principles and
themes, as well as their specific articulation to the film's narrative as a whole.

Poet/activists Sonya Sanchez and Aya De Leon, Cubberly Auditorium
Art and Activism Fall Event by Black Graduate Student Association (BGSA) Critically-acclaimed poets, activists, and educators, Sonia Sanchez and Aya De Leon. These women creatively use spoken word to reflect on issues facing communities of color. Through written and spoken word, they question the
status quo and highlight the individual's role in bringing about social change. We hope that members of Stanford's campus - as well as the broader Bay Area - will leave this event with a heightened awareness of issues facing the Black community, a fresh way of thinking about activism, and new
ideas about using art to create a voice for themselves and their communities.

Oscar Aleman: A Swinging Life Directed by Hernan Gaffet
The legend of Oscar Alemán, the acclaimed Argentine musician, dancer, film actor, and eccentric has largely been forgotten by history, but he was a seminal figure in the history of the guitar in jazz, and of jazz
in Europe and South America. Yet behind his dazzling musical ability and his flamboyant personality lies a story of personal tragedy and the will to carry on that took Alemán on an incredible trajectory. This homeless child rose to fame in South America and Europe, braving fascism, obscurity, and tragedy by the sheer force of his brassy personality, goofy sense of humor, and a breathtaking musical swing. This video
recaptures the engrossing tale of a forgotten musical legend. Argentina, 2002. In Spanish, with English subtitles. Documentary, 104 min.
