Frostburg State University's International Film Series continues with "Rodrigo D: No Future," slated for Tuesday, April 2, at 7 p.m. in the Lane University Center's Atkinson Room on the second floor. The series is sponsored by Center Stage and the Department of Student & Community Involvement.
"Rodrigo D" is a shockingly accurate and timely portrayal of the reckless existence of youths in Medellin, Colombia, one of the most exciting and dangerous cities in Latin America. The film centers around Rodrigo, a would-be drummer and his friends who are trapped in the violence and drugs that characterize their turbulent lifestyle. The film's actors are, essentially, local teenagers playing themselves. Shortly after production was completed, eight of them were killed, attesting to the tragic realism of this gripping film.
"Rodrigo D" is presented in Spanish with English subtitles, and has a running time of one hour and 33 minutes.
