We will have the privilege of listening and having a conversation with Luis Argueta, Guatemalan film director and documentarian on Tuesday, November 13 at 5 p.m. Luis Argueta, is one of the most important filmic voices in Guatemala and Central America, and has been working for years on the issues of migration and deportation. What happens to our neighbors, coworkers, and friends when they are exiled from the United States and have to go back to the countries they are supposed to belong? How is life after deportation? Luis will talk to us about these issues and show us some of his most recent work in Guatemala. In these dark and hard times for Central Americans, for immigrant communities across the US, and for everybody that cares about their neighbors, this is of an event of upmost importance.

Strongmen now rule over some of the most populous countries on earth, such as Turkey, Russia, and China. This talk looks at the appeal of these authoritarian rulers, and argues that Donald Trump can be seen within this tradition in terms of temperament and inclinations. The way to understand Trump is not through psychiatric diagnosis but by looking at him in the context of a century of authoritarian rulers from Mussolini onward.
