SCREENING

Raúl Juliá: The World’s a Stage

Ongoing

Location: Bartos Screening Room

With director Ben DeJesus in person

Dir. Ben DeJesus. 2019. 60 mins.

The feature documentary is a revealing portrait of the charismatic actor, who earned

recognition across the world for his versatility on stage and on screen before his life was

tragically cut short. From his early days on local stages in Puerto Rico to stardom on

Broadway and in Hollywood, Raúl’s story is one of passion, determination, and a bit of

magic – all qualities for which his performances were known. Before “diversity” was a

buzzword, the man with the big personality and thick accent was able to amass a varied

body of work that stands the test of time and that’s helped pave the way for many Latino

actors today. Told in his own voice through archival interviews and in the words of those

who knew him best, the film traces his personal and professional journey while

showcasing his groundbreaking theater performances and scenes from his cinematic

career.
