The program begins with a screening of La Partida (The Last Match), Antonio Hens' 2013 film about two teenage boys in Havana - both in relationships with women who provide their financial support - who begin a dangerous romance.
Following the film, Foster will discuss this and others that examine relationships within a Latin culture that has resisted nontraditional roles of sexuality.

He has written extensively on Argentine narrative and theater, and has held Fulbright teaching appointments in Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay.
