Screening of The Club (Pablo Larraín, 2016)
November 2 @ 6:00 pm
Keating 3rd, Fordham University (Rose Hill Campus)
With actor Alfredo Castro in attendance.
Reception to follow.
El Club is a film about the dynamics of disclosure and confession, cover-up and revelation. It takes place in a secluded house run by the Catholic Church in a small Chilean beach town for a group of disgraced priests and nuns suspected of crimes ranging from child abuse to baby-snatching from unwed mothers. The film shows the complications that ensue when the residents of the house have to engage with the questions of the surrounding town and the outside world.
Programmed by Carl Fischer as part of a retrospective of Alfredo Castro’s acting work, organized by Javier Guerrero (Princeton University).
