April 28 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT

Join us on Thursday, April 28th, 2022 at 4 PM EST for a Cafecito con William Caballero: Big Stories with Small Figures. We’ll be joined by filmmaker William Caballero and Dr. Jillian M. Báez to discuss William’s 2017 short film Chilly & Milly, which explores the director’s own experiences with his chronically ill father and his mother’s role as his eternal caretaker. Also discussed will be Victor & Isolina, which focuses on two elderly Latinos embarking on a resonating “he said/she said” account of the events that led them to live separately after more than 50 quirky and stressful years together. Tune in for a screening of the film as well as a discussion between William and Jillian. Be sure to bring your burning questions to the event, as we’ll turn it over to the audience for a Q&A at the end!
