Sofia and her husband live in a small village in the Colombian countryside. Their life has just been a long repetition of facts for years. They grew here, married and they know everybody in the village. He is the owner of a grocery. She makes everything in their house: she chooses his clothes in the morning, prepares breakfast, lunch and dinner, feeds the birds, cleans… And she has an old dream: she wants to go to the sea whereas she has always known mountains. But Gustavo always has good reasons to delay the trip. She leaves her morose husband and, with the curiosity of a teenager, embarks upon an adventure full of unexpected meetings and highly imaginative situations. Innovative, moving, and refreshing cinema.

As Orol, Roberto Sosa exudes droll underdog charm, anchoring a fast-moving comedy where every frame is an infectious homage to a golden age of cinema, the wile of memory and the art of fantasy.

7 CAJAS / 7 BOXES (Paraguay, 2012 )
Director: Rosario Garcia-Montero
Starring: Fatima Buntinx, Katerina D’Onofrio, Paul Vega

It's Friday, 40 degrees in Asunción. Víctor a 17 year old wheelbarrow leader, dreams of becoming famous, absorbed on the TV of an appliance store in the Municipal Market. Then, he loses a customer, another carter got ahead. The market’s world is hostile, competitive and there are thousands like him waiting to carry things. Then he receives an unusual proposal, to carry 7 boxes of unknown content, in exchange for a torn half of a $ 100 bill. The other half will be given to him when he finishes the job. Víctor, who has never seen a bill of this value, has no idea how many Guaraníes (Paraguayan money) means. But he also knows well that he doesn’t have the right to ask. His need is greater than his curiosity.
With a borrowed cell phone, which the contractor uses to tell him the way to go, Víctor embarks on the journey. Crossing the eight blocks that constitute the market seemed easy but things get complicated along the way: the box is stolen from him, he loses the cell phone and the police surround the place looking for something he completely ignores. To all this, is added a group of carters who are also willing to escort the boxes for a pittance of the profits. There is something in those boxes that generate a wheelbarrow chase in the secret and gloomy corridors of the market. Without even realizing, Víctor and his pursuers will get involved in a crime of which they don’t know anything: neither the cause nor the victim nor the victimizer. All of them are accomplices, because necessity forces them to run, to scream, to remain silent, or simply to pretend to be ñembotavy (Guaraní word meaning dumb).

As part of the activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of CLACS we announce two important exhibits:


Tuesday, September 10, 2013 - Sunday, January 5, 2014  
The Spurlock Museum joins the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) in celebrating its 50th anniversary. An integral part of this celebration is "Latin American Research: Past, Present, and Future." To complement this focus there will be an exhibition of Latin American folk art. Situated adjacent to the permanent South American Gallery, the exhibition will feature selected objects from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil, countries where CLACS personnel have conducted and are conducting research.
Location: Hundley Central Core Gallery, Spurlock Museum, 600 S. Gregory St., Urbana, IL
Time: During Museum Hours
Cost: Free Admission



An exhibit curated by Prof. Antonio Sotomayor and Prof. Paula Carns.
Open all of September 2013
Exhibit hall on the south side of the first floor of the Main Library

Latin America and the Caribbean is a region special for many reasons. Its rich culture, dynamic politics, and varied economies provide much space for study and engagement. However, as Peter Bakewell argues in “A History of Latin America,” what makes Latin America and the Caribbean a region unique from other parts of the world is its long history of cultural, political, racial, and ethnic mixing, otherwise known as mestizaje. Through more than 500 years of constant intermixing of different civilizations (broadly defined as Indigenous, European, African, and Asian), new types of societies have emerged, in different ways and with different features. The societies that inhabit these lands are a result of this mestizaje, whether genetic or cultural, which provides the basis for the ways in which politics work, their culture redefined, literary works created, languages spoken and written, and religions followed and practiced. Latin America and the Caribbean, is thus a true kaleidoscope of human civilizations, experiences, and histories, all brought together by that same diverse process of human interaction to achieve unity in diversity. In this exhibit you will see a very slim, but rare and sometimes unique, selection of the plethora of resources in our library collection. Stop by the exhibit hall on the south side of the first floor of the Main Library to learn more about these fascinating cultures.

2014 Brazilian Initiation Scholarship Competition

The Brazilian Initiation Scholarship (BIS) is a key component of BRASA’s agenda to expand Brazilian Studies in the United States.  BRASA invites applications from graduate and undergraduate students for a one-time $1,500 travel scholarship to do exploratory research in Brazil.  This scholarship targets aspiring Brazilianists with relatively little or no experience in Brazil.  It seeks to contribute to the student’s initial trip (for a period from six weeks to three months), to heighten the student’s interest in Brazil, and deepen his/her commitment to Brazilian studies in the United States.  Students are encouraged to combine this scholarship with other grants or awards.
Eligibility:  Proposals for the BIS will be reviewed according to the following criteria:
Highest priority will be given to applicants who are outstanding college seniors, recent college graduates applying to graduate programs in Brazilian studies or in Latin American studies with the intent of focusing on Brazil, or new graduate students already focusing on Brazil.
Students from all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences are eligible.  In exceptional cases, applications from the natural sciences will be given consideration (for example, someone in environmental sciences who is writing a dissertation on the Amazon or pollution in São Paulo and who plans to continue research on Brazil). 
Preference will be given to those applicants who have little or no in-country experience in Brazil.  A student requesting funding to undertake an exploratory research trip should present evidence at the time of the application that he/she has achieved at least an intermediate level of competence in the Portuguese language sufficient to carry out the proposed research. Successful applicants may combine BIS with other grants, scholarships, or awards, as long as he/she specifies clearly how the funds are going to be spent (for example, the BRASA scholarship might be used to cover travel costs, while a grant from another source could be used for living expenses, etc.). Applicants are required to be BRASA members at the time of submission.
Application Process:  A complete application (partial applications will not be considered) will include the following documents: (NOTE THAT ALL OF THE DOCUMENTS EXCEPT FOR THE TRANSCRIPTS AND LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION MUST BE SUBMITTED AS ONE PDF OR MSWORD DOCUMENT).

The application cover page (download form at );(1) A two-page prospectus (double spaced, 12-point font);(2) A two-page résumé or CV;(3) A budget specifying how the $1500 will be spent;(4) In the case of undergraduates or recent college graduates, a letter of intent to study Brazil in graduate school; (5) A two-page bibliography on the subject of study, and evidence that the applicant has achieved at least an intermediate level of competence in Portuguese (competence can be demonstrated by a transcript or a letter from a university instructor of Portuguese);(6)  Proof of membership in BRASA; (7) Two letters of recommendation from professors; and (8) Copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts.
The letters of recommendation and transcripts may be mailed directly to BRASA at the address below.  All other materials should be submitted together either as PDF or MSWord files in a single email to
Evaluation Criteria and Selection Process:
In order to be considered for the scholarship, the two-page prospectus should:(1) Clearly and coherently outline the project’s engagement with Brazil; (2) Demonstrate as precisely as possible the feasibility of the proposed exploratory research project and how it will contribute to the student’s academic development; (3) Briefly discuss the role the work undertaken in Brazil will play in shaping the applicant’s future course of academic study (for instance, it could be the seed project for a larger grant application, provide the basis of a paper prepared for presentation at a BRASA conference, or serve as the foundation for future research on Brazil).
Report: Upon completion of the research experience in Brazil, recipients are required to file a two-page, double-spaced report with the BRASA Executive Director summarizing their activities and identifying relevant academic outcomes. In addition, a statement accounting for the expenditure of funds must be sent to the BRASA Executive Director. Following completion of studies in Brazil, BRASA strongly encourages recipients to participate in a subsequent BRASA congress in order to report on their activities.
Deadline for application: November 15, 2013.
Awards will be announced by February 03rd, 2014.To submit a proposal and for all other correspondence regarding this award, contact:
