New Mexican Film Week
February 3rd to 9th
We’ll open the event with the riveting Miss Bala by Gerardo Naranjo, the highly-acclaimed film representing Mexico at the Oscars, along with Presumed Innocent, the once-banned, highest-grossing documentary in the history of Mexican cinema, which exposes the contradictions of a faulty judicial system and the struggles of the wrongfully accused. Summer of Goliath by Nicolás Pereda, Tierra Madre by Dylan Verrechia, andCephalopod by Ruben Imaz will also be featured, on top of Marimbas from Hell by Julio Hernandez Cordon, which won the Jury Prize at the 2011 FCLM. Alongside these films will be a selection of short films made by Mexican filmmakers living in Montreal.
Come see the future of Mexican Cinema from February 3rd to the 9th at Cinéma du Parc!
