Carga Sellada (Sealed Cargo) (2015) is a film directed by Bolivian filmmaker Julia Vargas-Weise. A crew of hapless police and a stowaway make their way across Bolivia in an aged train, searching for a place to dump highly toxic cargo. Shot in the 12,000 feet-high ochre expanses of the Bolivian altiplano, this film combines humor and drama with a ‘green’ message about the global waste crisis.

As part of the celebrations honoring the Hispanic Heritage Month, this semester the Department of Modern Languages at the University of Mississippi is presenting the fourth Hispanic Heritage Series Films with the screening of five contemporary Spanish and Latin-American films. 

There will be films in Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan, all with English subtitles.This unique opportunity is made possible with the support of Pragda, the Spanish Film Club.com, SPAIN Arts & Culture, and the Secretary of State for the Culture of Spain. Our local major sponsors are: The Department of Modern Languages, The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, The Center for Inclusion and Cross-Cultural Engagement, and Alpha Lambda Delta.
