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)
