CCCCD PRESENTS 'REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES' AS PART OF AUTEUR FILM SERIES 2004

September 24, 2004 - Collin County Community College District (CCCCD) presents its annual Auteur Film Series for 2004-2005. The first film will be "Real Women Have Curves," screened at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 27 in room C104 on the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. The film is free and open to the public.

This 2002 film, directed by Patricia Cardoso, is the story of a first generation Mexican-American teenager on the verge of becoming a woman. "Auteurs" are filmmakers whose creative vision has a definitive impact on their work. Cardoso was raised in Bogota, Columbia, and moved to the U.S. in 1987. "Curves" is being shown in conjunction with National Hispanic Heritage Month, which begins Sept. 15.

Following the film, there will be a brief panel discussion between the audience, students and professors.
