Jaime Chávarri's El Desencanto (The Disenchantment): Film screening and talkback with Aaron Shulman, author of The Age of Disenchantments

Hannah Community Center
"A cult classic in Spain on a par with Grey Gardens but rarely screened in the US, director Jaime Chávarri's El Desencanto (The Disenchantment) tells the story of the Paneros, a brilliant and tormented literary family whose eccentricities and taboo-smashing exhibitionism turned them into a phenomenon in Spain the year after dictator Francisco Franco died. The newly subtitled film is a national classic, valued and remembered for both the role it played in Spain’s transition to democracy and for the Paneros’ singular strangeness. This special screening hosted by the East Lansing Public Library and the East Lansing Film Festival will welcome Lansing area native Aaron Shulman, author of a new book about the Paneros, The Age of Disenchantments: The Epic Story of Spain’s Most Notorious Literary Family and the Long Shadow of the Spanish Civil War (Ecco/HarperCollins). Shulman will stay after for a talkback about the film and books will be on sale for him to sign. "One of the great docs." -- Critic Mark Cousins"
Film begins at 5:30.
Tickets: $5 per person
