A brownbag lunch video and discussion is the next event scheduled in Louisiana Tech’s Shaping the 21st Century: Focus on Latin America series.

The movie shown will be “The Last Communist,” a 1992 film on Fidel Castro. It will be introduced by Stephen Webre, head of the department of history at 12:15 p.m., Thursday, April 9, at the International Student Office in Tolliver Hall.

On Wednesday, April 15, Tech’s College of Education will host the second film screening of the series. “Central Station,” a 1998 movie directed by Walter Salles, will be shown at the A.E. Phillips Planetarium at 6:30 p.m.

Both of these events are free and open to the public.

This year’s Shaping the 21st Century series is sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs, the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Education, the International Education Committee and the Working Group on Latin America Studies.
