Event Image Exhibition | "David Roberts: Travels in the Holy Land" | Aug. 10 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

CLANDESTINE CHILDHOOD (Infancia clandestina) Benjamin Ávila / Argentina, Spain, Brazil / 2012 / Argentina, 1979. After years of exile, Juan (12) and his family come back to Argentina under fake identities. Juan's parents and his uncle Beto are members of the Montoneros Organization, which is fighting against the Military Junta that rules the country. Because of their political activities they are being tracked down relentlessly, and the threat of capture and even death is constant. However, Juan's daily life is also full of warmth and humor, and he quickly and easily integrates into his new environment. His friends at school and the girl he has a gigantic crush on, Maria, know him as Ernesto, a name he must not forget, since his family's survival is at stake. Juan accepts this and follows all of his parents' rules until one day he is told that they need to move again immediately and leave his friends and Maria behind without an explanation. This story about militancy, undercover life, and love is the Argentine submission for the 2013 Best Foreign-Language Academy Award.
