The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. View Event
The Arts at Queens invites you to listen to Enrique Graf's piano concert. Graf has been described as "a master" (The Washington Post), "one of the best interpreters of his generation" (El Pais) and one who plays with "fiery virtuosity" (The New York Times). View Event
