2:21 p.m., Sept. 16, 2013--The Latin American and Iberian Studies (LAIS) program has planned a series of fascinating events for the 2013–2014 academic year, ranging from movie showings, lectures and art exhibits, to performances involving Latin American and Iberian cultures. All events are free and open to the UD community. 

The first event of the series is the screening of the film La Camioneta: The Journey of an American School Bus at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19, in 127 Memorial Hall. Film director Mark Kendall and associate producer and UD alumnus Andrew Larason will introduce the film. The screening and discussion will be followed by a reception to welcome all the student organizations and clubs that work with Latino communities and cultures at UD and beyond.
