Frostburg State University's 2000-2001 International Film Series continues with "Carne Tremula, " on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m. in Lane Center room 201. The series is sponsored by Center Stage and the Lane Center & Campus Activities.
Directed by Pedro Almodóvar, the most internationally acclaimed Spanish filmmaker since Luis Buñuel, this 1997 film explores life, love and desire. It was later released in the United States as "Live Flesh."
When Victor Plaza is sent to jail for a crime he didn't commit, he unknowingly becomes a catalyst in the lives of the two cops, a philandering wife and diplomat's daughter who put him there. Seven years later he emerges still in his 20's and full of pride, yet haunted by anger at the years he lost. But instead of revenge he finds redemption, while the other players learn through their contact with Victor that hope cannot be smothered and redemption doesn't come cheap.
This and future film series showings are free and open to the public. "Carne Tremula" is in Spanish with English subtitles and has a running time of 101 minutes.
