Celebrating the Life

AUSTIN, Texas — The Human Rights Documentation Initiative (HRDI) and the Benson Latin American Collection are collaborating with the Brazil Center at the Lozano Long Institute for Latin American Studies(LLILAS) and Kinobras to bring a Brazil and human rights film series to The University of Texas at Austin. The Brazilian Film Series on Human Rights will feature seven critically acclaimed films with central human rights themes to be presented March 21-31 in locations across campus.
The Benson Latin American Collection presents the ninth annual ¡A Viva Voz!, "Machetes, Mariachis and Spy Kids: Elizabeth Avellán Makes Movies" in which film producer Elizabeth Avellán will discuss her life as one of the few Latina film producers who has been able to succeed in the male-dominated film business. The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 7.
The Fine Arts Library at The University of Texas at Austin has partnered with the Harry Ransom Center to host an exhibition of materials related to the college career of American playwright Tennessee Williams. "Tennessee Williams, the College Years" is a limited collection of materials from the writer's time in the academy that serves as a companion to the Ransom Center's extensive exhibition on his broader life and career "Becoming Tennessee Williams," both of which are on display through July 31.
