Arts and Culture

Join the First Take crew each Thursday at 8:35 AM as they talk about Colorado’s cultural scene with Arts District host Carrie Saldo. Below is the summary from September 17, 2015.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage month, the Denver Film Society is hosting the second annual CineLatino Film Festival September 24 through 27.

This festival celebrates the best in cinema from Latin America, Mexico, Europe and the United States and features seven feature length films, three documentaries, and one retrospective title.

Dr. Robert Greer examines Brothers, Rivals, Victors: Eisenhower, Patton, Bradley and the Partnership that Drove the Allied Conquest in Europe by Jonathan W. Jordan. 

Detailing the sacrifices made by the allied powers to deliver the greatest conquest of World War II, Jordan explores the relationship between Eisenhower, Patton and Bradley - American commanders in North Africa and Europe from 1942-1945. 

The relationship between these men deviates from the glorified "band of brother" history has painted.

Join the Denver Film Society, Telemundo and KUVO as we kick-off Hispanic Heritage Month and CineLatino September 16 at the Sie FilmCenter.

This event is FREE and open to the public. First come, first seated.

For many of us, thoughts of traveling to tropical villas to sip frozen beverages while yachting prompt reveries of relaxation. Some people imagine reclining on floating loungers amid crystal waters, while the more audacious think about splashing in the waves. When KUVO’s "First Take with Lando and Chavis" asked Matthew Moseley about his paradisiacal fantasies, he simply shared one of his past experiences: having paddled 24.5 miles through the Atlantic Ocean from Culebra Island to Puerto Rico without assistance, Moseley spoke to the pleasure of (you guessed it…) swimming.
