30 de marzo – Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, (1969) Directed by George Roy Hill @ 7:30 PM, Hammer Museum’s Billy Wilder Theater, 10899 Wilshire Boulevard at Westwood Boulevard, $8/$10.

EPR says: Still deciding whether it’s worth the lechuga to see this classic on the big screen.

28 de marzo – To Have and Have Not, @ 7:00 PM, Hammer Museum’s Billy Wilder Theater, 10899 Wilshire Boulevard at Westwood Boulevard, $8/$10.

EPR says: Part of Hammer’s month long Bogart series. Watch Lauren Bacall seduce Bogie in her first film and you get why he married her a year later. This all time scene is #11 (chronologically) on the LA Times 50  Classic Movie Kisses.

20 de marzo – Descarga @ 9 PM, El Cid, 4212 Sunset Boulevard, $7-$10.

20 de marzo – Funky Sole @ The Echo, 1822 Sunset Boulevard, FREE.

19 de marzo – Amei um bicheiro (I Love a Bookie) (1952, Brazil) Directed by Jorge Ileli and Paulo Wanderley @ 7:30 PM, Hammer Museum’s Billy Wilder Theater, 10899 Wilshire Boulevard at Westwood Boulevard, $8.

EPR says: Part the “Brazilian Film of the 1950s” series. A unique opportunity to view pre-Cinema Novo popular films from Brazil’s then emerging film industry. Very curious to see this Brazilian noir from Atlântida Cinematográfica.

17 de marzo – Brazil in the Emerging New World Economy @ 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM, Jan Popper Theater, UCLA Schoenberg Hall, FREE.

EPR says: Interesting format. Lecture by Ambassador José Alfredo Graça Lima, Consul General of Brazil in Los Angeles, will be followed with a piano recital by Alexandre Dietrich.

18 de marzo – Las Vacas w/ Marushka @ 8:30 PM, Gusto Trattoria, 417 Washington Boulevard, Venice.





5 de marz0 – ESLABONES: State Terrorism and Resistance in Argentina @ 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM, UCLA Haines Hall 279, FREE.

Micro-reseña: One of the most profound and moving events I’ve attended. Stunningly candid and thoughtful presentation from three women who lived through Argentina’s military dictatorship.

3 de marzo – The Mexican Revolution at 100: “The Legacy and Promise of the Mexican Revolution” – A lecture by Mr. Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas, founder of the Partido de la Revolución Democrática (PRD) and former governor of the state of Michoacán. @ 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM, UCLA Kerchoff Hall, Charles Young Salon, FREE.

Micro-reseña: Informative but painfully boring. An hour of detailed historical facts read from a script with very little editorial from Mr. Cárdenas.

24 de febrero – Condor. A film by Roberto Mader with music by Victor Biglion @ 7:30, UCLA James Bridges Theater, FREE.

Micro-reseña: The film is worth seeing for the raw information contained in the interviews with those who perpetrated and suffered from political persecution in Latin America during years of “Operation Condor”. However, there was a noticeable aimlessness, lack of pacing, and overindulgence in artistic digressions that sapped the film of its potential impact.
