Collin College Auteur Series Honors Hispanic Heritage Month

September 14, 2009 – Collin College presents its second installment of its 2009-10 Auteur Film Series with “Don't Die Without Telling Me Where You're Going.”

The free screening is at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 28, at the Spring Creek Campus Conference Center, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. The film is rated PG and runs 120 minutes. The screening is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

This year’s theme is “Meta-Cinema: Movies About The Movies,” films where filmmaking itself plays a central role in the film.

“Don't Die Without Telling Me Where You're Going” follows Argentinean business owner Leopoldo, who is visited by Rachel – possibly a ghost – who informs him that in a former life he invented the medium of film as an employer of Thomas Edison and that she – Rachel – was his wife. The film is presented in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited. Some material may not be suitable for all audiences.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion led by Collin College faculty and staff.

Education Through Film is a collaboration between the Auteur Film Series and the Center for Scholarly and Civic Engagement.
