Tuesday November 11th: "El baño del Papa" ('The Pope's toilet')

Hello!!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend =)

Tomorrow we will be presenting a film from Uruguay. The film is titled "El baño del Papa". It tells the story of Beto who makes his living of contraband, smuggling small products from Brazil to Uruguay, where he lives. One day, the Pope's visit to Uruguay is announced. This turns everything upside down for the people living at Melo, but 
Beto has a brilliant idea: to build a toilet! An offbeat charmer, The Pope's Toilet is a humorous, well-crafted tale with plenty of heart and a poignant social message.

IMDB rating: 7.3
Rotten tomatoes rating: 88%


Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vC8UxZ_q48

WHEN: Tuesday November 11th, at 7:15 PM (movie will be starting 7.35pm)

Tuesday November 4th: "Esperando la Carroza" ('Waiting for the Hearse')


Hello everyone! 


Today we will present "Esperando la carroza" ('Wainting the Hearse'). An Argentine comedy cult film from 1985. It belongs to the criollo grotesque (costumbrismo) genre or black comedy. It's inspired on the play of the same name by Jacobo Langsner premiered by the Comedia Nacional company on 1962 and directed by Sergio Otermin. 


Mamá Cora (Antonio Gasalla) is about 80 years old and she has three sons and a daughter. Mamá lives with one of them, unfortunately, the one who is in the worst economic position. One day, all the members of the family have a reunion to celebrate an anniversary. In the middle of the whole thing, an awkward question appears out of nowhere: ¿Who's going to be Mamá Cora's heir? ¿Who is going to take care of her during her last days in this world?. The answer is not easy and it doesn't take too long for the members of this bizarre family to start a terrible and yet hilarious fight. However, in the middle of the whole thing, they're interrupted by some disturbing breaking news...Mamá Cora killed herself!.
WHAT: ESPERANDO LA CARROZA
WHEN: Tuesday November 4th, at 7:15 PM (movie will be starting 7.35pm)
WHERE: History Corner - Main Quad. Bldg. 200

TUESDAY NIGHT: "No llegues hasta acá" ('Do not come down here') - Oct 14th @7.15pm

Hello everyone! 


This week we will be finally showing the documentary/film titled:"No llegues hasta acá" ('Do not come down here'). This Tuesday will be special as we will be doing our first film-debate-night.


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.
