Professor Ruffinelli to Inaugurate Professorship of Latin American Cinema at Brazilian University

Professor of Iberian and Latin American Cultures Jorge Ruffinelli will travel to Brazil next week to inaugurate the Glauber Rocha Professorship of Latin American Cinema at the Universidad Federal de Integración Latinoamericana in Paraná.

His most acclaimed works, all of which have either been screened or won awards at the Cannes Film Festival, include Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol, A Grande Cidade, and Terra em Transe.

The events will take place from March 20th to March 22nd in the César Lattes Auditorium of Itaipu Technological Park and will be directed primarily towards professors, alumni, and graduate students.
