The next Movie Night @ YLS is scheduled this coming Thursday, April 15, at 6:20pm in SLB Room 127. The movie we will screen is La Lengua de las Mariposas (Butterfly).
For Moncho, it is an idyllic year: he starts school, has a wonderful teacher, and makes a new friend. But it's also the year leading up to the Spanish Civil War and tensions are high between the leftist Spanish Republic and forces on the right. Moncho's father is a Republican as is the aging teacher, Don Gregorio. As the village divides and power falls clearly to one side, the forces of fear, violence, and betrayal alter profoundly what should be the pleasure of coming of age.
