REMINDER: 2012 CMU International Film Festival presents its final screening of ‘El Sicario, Room 164’ THIS Saturday!‏

If you missed out on last week's El Sicario, Room 164 film event, the 2012 Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival: Faces of Others will showcase its final screening of the 2011 documentary THIS Saturday, March 31, at 7:30pm at the McConomy Auditorium, CMU's University Center!  The screening will also feature a lively discussion moderated by Paul Eiss, Director of Carnegie Mellon's Center for the Arts in Society!

El Sicario, Room 164 explores the terrifyingly casual roots of evil through the eyes of an unnamed, former "sicario" - a hit man and enforcer for a drug cartel in Ciudad Juárez who once kidnapped and tortured someone in the very room in which Gianfranco Rosi films this thrilling documentary. Even though he is masked throughout the film in order to protect his identity, the profound psychological trauma that he experienced throughout his involvement with narcotrafficking is clearly visible in his startling reenactments, gestures, and drawings, and will provoke audiences to question the truth about the War on Drugs that continues to dominate global politics today.

This festival event is presented in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon's Center for the Arts in Society.

Regular admission is $5 Seniors and Students (w/valid student ID) / $8 'Others'. You can purchase tickets and find additional info regarding El Sicario, Room 164 and the festival in general on our website:
