CMRS Movie Night: “La Otra Conquista”

Thursday, January 18 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Set in the wake of the Spanish conquest of Mexico, Salvador Carrasco’s stunning film La Otra Conquista explores the personal, social, and spiritual dimensions of conquest through the eyes of the conquered. Tracing the experiences of a young Aztec scribe facing the destruction and replacement of his faith and a well-intentioned friar charged with his spiritual reeducation, this film examines what it means to convert. Q & A with lead actor Damián Delgado (Topiltzin/Tomás) will follow the film.
