Maestra (2011) Directed by Catherine Murphy

In 1960, Cuba made an open call for volunteer teachers for the Cuban Literacy Campaign. Over 250,000 people volunteered, including thousands of very young women who achieved a degree of independence virtually unknown by Cuban women at the time. Maestra explores the stories of eight of these women and we see how the experience changed their lives, and the lives of others. (34 min. Not Rated.) Catherine Murphy is scheduled to be present. Organized by Cubamistad with support from IU Cinema, Black Film Center/Archive, Film and Media Studies, La Casa, Department of Communication and Culture, History, Spanish and Portuguese, and Folklore, Latino Studies Program, and Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
