Tribute to Borau

As my USC colleague from the Spanish Department, Julian has been very willing to collaborate on all events related to Spanish cinema. He helped me convince the American Cinematheque to include a tribute to the great filmmaker, José Luis Borau (who passed away in 2012), in their 2014 series on Recent Spanish Cinema. He also was a panelist in the forum that followed the screenings at USC and contributed a marvelous essay on Mi querida señorita to our special volume on Borau. He also included my essay, “The Road and the Room: Narrative Drive in the Films of Luis Buñuel,” in the 2013 volume that he co-edited with Rob Stone, titled A Companion to Luis Buñuel.
