Los Angeles Premiere! MY FIRST WEDDING (MI PRIMERA BODA), 2011, 102 min. Jewish-born but now secular Adrián (Daniel Hendler) and Catholic-born but now quasi-secular Leonora (Natalia Oreiro) have finally reached their wedding day. Instead of gracefully embracing matrimony, Adrian spends the hours leading up to the ceremony trying to postpone it, not because he's got cold feet (or does he?), but because he's clumsily lost both his and his bride-to-be’s sacred wedding rings. Disaster ensues in director Ariel Winograd's winning comedy about the politics of the proverbial "Big Day." A box-office success in Argentina! In Spanish with English subtitles. Introduction of Argentina New Cinema series special guests at 7:30 PM, feature to start at 8:00 PM. Discussion following the film with director Ariel Winograd (MY FIRST WEDDING). Reception following in the courtyard for ticket holders.
