Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center (154 Angell Street)

Marighella is set in 1969 and is based on the life of Afro-Brazilian politician and guerrilla fighter Carlos Marighella. Facing a violent military dictatorship and with little support from a timid opposition, writer-turned-politician Carlos Marighella organizes a resistance movement. Alongside revolutionaries 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opts for action.

At the end of the film screening, we will have a roundtable discussion with:

- Ana Claúdia dos Santos São Bernardo, Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Studies, Providence College

James Green, Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Professor of Modern Latin American History, Brown University

- Paulo Dutra, Assistant Professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of New Mexico
