TODAS LAS PELICULAS DE LA SEMANA /// THIS WEEKS FILM DETAILS
We continue to host free outdoor screenings of the best in Contemporary Mexican Cinema each Wednesday nightt, this week with the Special presentation of LOS LOBOS in which eight year old Max and his younger brother Leo don’t have much, but they have each other and their mother Lucía. And they share a dream as well: To visit Disneyland one day. The family has recently emigrated to the USA from Mexico, and while Lucía tries to finance their new life by doing odd jobs, the two brothers spend their days in their sparsely furnished one-room flat. The walls of the room, which they are forbidden to leave, become a projection screen for imaginative adventures and open a window on their new life. Director Samuel Kishi Leopo recalls aspects of his own childhood in Los Lobos and resituates them in a currently highly charged context – brutally honest and yet poetic, melancholic and full of hope.
THURSDAY OUTDOOR SCREENING: ANOTHER ROUND
Due to popular demand, we’ll host another outdoor screening of thee Oscar winner in the foreign language category “ANOTHER ROUND” which portrays four high school teachers who embark on a sociological experiment in which each of them must maintain a certain amount of alcohol in their body every day, drinking every day, to cheer up a depressed friend and thus demonstrate that , with alcohol, everything can be a little better.
The last peasant of a family has died and with him, all wisdom to till the soil has been lost. Without experience, his daughter and granddaughter will attempt a last traditional harvest to try to convince Grandma, the widow of the peasant, to keep their plot of land. Together they will uncover the leftovers (locally known as the titixe) of this man and his world: a mourning tree, dancing sprouts, the language of clouds, ghosts, stories and the endless menace of losing the crops to a tempest. This is an intimate mosaic of the last harvest of a Mexican family, in a country that has forsaken its rural origins.
COSAS QUE NO HACEMOS/ THINGS WE DARE NOT DO
Tells the story of the small town of El Roblito on the border of Nayarit and Sinaloa, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Although in the surroundings there is a context of violence provoked by organized crime and drug traffickers, there is a certain calm: adults work far away, and girls and boys run through the streets, play, dance, go to the lake and dance. long long dips. Among them, little Ñoño, only 16 years old, hides a secret: he likes to dress in women’s clothes.
