“The Violin is one of the most amazing Mexican films in many a year. Filmmaking in its purest form… Moving, urgent, and necessary.”—Guillermo del Toro, director of Pan’s Labyrinth

In the acclaimed The Violin, a grandfather and musician lives a double life. He’s as a supporter of a peasant guerrilla movement who acts as a harmless old violin player to recover an ammunition cache that the government stole from his village. A captivating game of cat-and-mouse ensues as the army captain is charmed by his music and orders the musician to return daily. (98 mins., 35mm)

The Sugar Curtain, an even-handed debut documentary from the daughter of Patricio Guzmán, is an autobiographical portrait of Cuba. Returning to the country where she was raised during the “golden years” of the Cuban revolution, Guzmán Urzúa is forced to reconcile her nostalgia with the reality of contemporary Cuba, discovering that, as the Village Voice phrased it, “to be Cuban is to be conflicted.” (82 mins., 35mm)

Second film starts 8:50 PM
