On Feb. 16 and 17, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present a lively weekend with a film and lecture on tap.
DCA will present a screening Feb. 16, 7 pm, of the Academy Award-winning film Moonlight. The film tells the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life as he experiences the ecstasy, pain, and beauty of falling in love, all while grappling with his own sexuality. Moonlight received near-universal acclaim upon its release, winning Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Mahershalah Ali) and Best Adapted Screenplay. The screening is free to the public. Freewill donations are encouraged.
On Feb. 17 at 10 am, St. Norbert College assistant professor of political science Dr. Angel Saavedra Cisneros will present the lecture “Latinos in the American Electorate and Beyond: Identity, Language, and Issues.” Cisneros will explore some broad realities about Latinos in the United States, including growth and geographic trends as well as political facts and figures. Relying on his recently published book Latino Identity and Political Attitudes: Why Are Latinos Not Republican?, Cisneros will present his theory of Latino identity and partisanship and how it relates to past and future political contests.
The lecture is free to the public; donations encouraged. Refreshments from Base Camp Coffee Shop will be available for purchase.
DCA is located on Highway 42 at the top of the hill in Fish Creek. For more information visit dcauditorium.org.
