THURSDAY NIGHT: "No llegues hasta acá" ('Do not come down here') - Sept 11th @7.15pm

THURSDAY NIGHT: "No llegues hasta acá" ('Do not come down here') - Sept4th 7.30pm

Hello everyone! This week we will be trying something new. We will be watching a documentary/film titled: "No llegues hasta acá" ('Do not come down here'). 

This bright documentary, based on true testimonies, tells a fiction story delivering many of the reasons that might lead many youngsters to commit felonies, as well as the reasons which can lead them to abandon such behavior. The film will take us into the prisons of Mendoza (Argentina) showing the crude reality of the life and people inside these. The aim of this production is to help us and our generation of young adolescents, to realize which decisions, situations and social environment might result decisive in our lives, as with knowledge and education it is possible (if not the only way) to build a better prospective society. 

This production was entirely done in Mendoza, Argentina. After the film, we will be having a period to share and have an open debate. We will discuss how this might have an impact on the social environment each of us has grown up and among other interesting triggering questions.

CineStanford will like to thanks Daniel A. Caselles (aka Dani) for bringing this proposal and film. Dani will be conducting us through some questions.

TOMORROW NIGHT... MOVIE NIGHT!... Tiempo de Valientes!!!

Hello y'all!

After a short brake we are back with Thursday's movie night, starting tomorrow night. We will be enjoying a fantastic and funny movie: Tiempo de Valientes ('On Probation').

Tiempo de valientes (English: On Probation) is a 2005 Argentine comedy film written and directed by Damián Szifrón. 

The film tells of Alfredo Díaz (Luis Luque) is a burly seen-it-all cop who falls in depression after discovering that his wife has been cheating on him. Mariano Silverstein (Diego Peretti) is a skinny Jewish shrink/psychologist forced to work with the police doing community work, who has the task of helping Alfredo to deal with his problems.

When Alfredo is invited to dinner to Silverstein's home, everything turns head-over-feet! This unthought coupled is drawn to solve not only personal issues on their lives but also to unravel a conspiracy of national proportions, finding themselves in a stew of murder, arms dealers and corrupt cops, and only their new friendship will get them out alive.

The picture is a hilarious buddy-cop adventure and FYI a collaboration with Fox films.

Hi y'all,

Once again, tomorrow we'll be having movie night. We will be having one of Ricardo Darin's latest and not so known movies, titled Carancho. Nonetheless, believe me this is a great movie!

Synopse: "In Argentina over 8,000 people die in traffic accidents every year. Behind each of these tragedies is a flourishing industry founded on insurance payouts and legal loopholes. Sosa is a lawyer who tours the A&E Departments of the public hospitals and the police stations in search of potential clients. Luján is a young doctor recently arrived from the provinces. Their love story kicks off one night when Luján and Sosa meet in the street. She's trying to save a man's life; he wants him on his client portfolio."
