The University of Utah’s annual Anthropology Film Series concludes its monthlong run on Wednesday, Feb. 29, with a screening of the 2010 Spanish drama "Even the Rain ("Tambien la lluvia").
The movie stars Gael Garcia Bernal as an obsessed film director making a revisionist depiction of Christopher Columbus. Filming in Bolivia, he hires some natives as extras, and soon becomes embroiled in a local battle over water rights.
The screening begins at 6 p.m. at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, 410 Campus Center Drive, University of Utah campus, Salt Lake City. The event is free.
