“INSIDE THE REVOLUTION”
A film by Pablo Navarrete

7pm Session – Cuba
“VIVA CUBA”
In a tale akin to Romeo and Juliet, the friendship between two children is threatened by their parents differences.
Malu is from an upper-class family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito. Jorgitos mother is a poor socialist, proud of her familys social standing, who places similar restrictions on her son. What neither woman recognizes is the immense strength of the bond between Malu and Jorgito.
When the children learn that Malus mother is planning to leave Cuba, they decide to travel to the other side of the island to find Malus father and persuade him against signing the forms that would allow it.
Viva Cuba won 34 national and international awards.

Sunday October 31

5pm Session – Mexico
(Dinner served in interval)
“THE VIOLIN”
“One of the most amazing Mexican films in many a year…The Violin is filmmaking in its purest form. – Guillermo del Toro, Director of Pan’s Labyrinth
Don Plutarco, his son Genaro and his grandson Lucio live a double life: on one hand they are musicians and humble farmers, on the other they support the campesina peasant guerilla movement’s armed efforts against the oppressive government. When the military seizes the village, the rebels flee to the sierra hills, forced to leave behind their stock of ammunition. While the guerillas organize a counter-attack, old Plutarco executes his own plan.
