TAMU- free tics to film "A Fantastic Woman"

Posted April 13, 2018

See A Fantastic Woman, 2017’s Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film, on the big screen at Cinemark Theaters in College Station, free of charge with your fellow Aggies: next Tuesday (April 17th) at 7:30PM. Focused on a transgender singer (portrayed by acclaimed new star, Daniela Vega) who faces scorn and discrimination after the sudden death of her boyfriend, A Fantastic Woman is a landmark Chilean drama currently in worldwide release. Guy Lodge in Variety calls it “a new, luminous touchstone work.” A.O. Scott in the New York Times writes: “The title of Sebastián Lelio’s new film might seem a bit on the nose. It’s a fantastic movie. Daniela Vega, the star, is fantastic in it. Quote me in the ads, with exclamation points if you must. My work here is done.”

A Fantastic Woman is 104 minutes, in Spanish with English subtitles, and rated R “for language, sexual content, nudity, and a disturbing assault.” (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.) The trailer for the film can be found here: sonyclassics.com/afantasticwoman/ Following the screening, there will be a discussion of the film on-site at Cinemark with representatives of the events sponsors.

This event is sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, the Latino/a and Mexican-American Studies Program, the Film Studies Program, Aggie Allies, Transcend, and the GLBT Resource Center. It is funded, in part, with an Innovations in Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accountability Grant through the College of Liberal Arts.

Free tickets (up to four per person) can be picked up from Annette Jackson at the Interdisciplinary Critical Studies Offices in 314 Bolton Hall starting at 1PM, Thursday April 12 (while supplies last). The office is open M-F from 7:30-3:45.
