El Fondo Becario Esperanza, El Taller Latino Americano and Art for Change are proud to present Ciclo de Cine Chileno! The goal of this Ciclo de Cine is not only to view great contemporary Chilean films but also help eradicate social inequality that persists in Chile and the rest of Latin America. The $5 admission will go towards the Fondo Becario Esperanza which helps exceptional children from shantytowns similar to Machuca's, attend private schools.
Enjoy an afternoon of inspiring films and great company!
On Saturday, the featured film is Machuca (www.machucacine.cl). Check out NYMosaico's review of Machuca here.
On Sunday, there will be a screening of Sexo Con Amor, a Chilean comedy made in 2003 which shows a set of parents dealing with how to present the topic of sexual education to their children while they resolve their own marital and extra marital affairs. It's very funny and explores the topic of sex in a society that has been very conservative and traditional.
The exact date of this concert is not known, but it occurred in the marked year around this time.
