¿Puedo Hablar? May I Speak?

From Professor Share:

I’m writing to you as heads of programs that contributed to the visit of Christopher Moore, producer and co-director of a recently released documentary on Venezuelan politics (¿Puedo Hablar? May I speak?). Moore and a co-producer will be on campus Tuesday, April 22, 2008. He will screen his film at 4 p.m. in Rausch Auditorium (Mc 003) and then field questions. There will likely be a poster display somewhere on campus during the day.

I’d like to ask you to distribute this message to members of your department. Some might want to encourage their students to attend the film at 4, and others might be interested in having the filmmakers attend a class. The filmmakers are already scheduled to appear in my PG 380 (Latin American Politics) from 2-3:20 p.m., and it might be possible to find a bigger room and invite other classes to join us if there is interest. It is also possible that we could arrange visits to classes in the morning, so please let me know if you are interested. A PG student group is going to host either a dinner or lunch with the filmmakers.

More information about the film (including the trailer) and the filmmakers can be found at

Thanks again for supporting this event,
