Film Series: The Cinema Hold-Up

2011. México. Dir: Irina Gómez Concheiro. With Gabino Rodríguez. 107 min.

Concheiro crafts a vibrant and wonderfully observed portrait of the tempo and texture of today’s Mexican youth culture. Four teenagers from a rundown district of Mexico City decide to rob a movie theater, jeopardizing the one sure thing they have in life: their friendship.

Presented as part of The Spanish Film Club series with the support of Pragda, the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain, and its Program for Cultural Cooperation with U.S. Universities.

Tonight, September 27th. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
