SHORT FILMS FROM MEXICO

CURATORS: Claudia Cohen and Patricia Davelouis.

At 8 pm. at CaféTeatret

FilmPlatform proudly presents a selection of the most exciting short films from Mexico from the last decades. Several of the films deal with death, and the serious subject is treated with love and a black humour that is typically Mexican.

This evening also gives you a chance to see a very young Gael García Bernal starring in the film "De tripas Corazon". All films have English subtitles. This programme is curated by Claudia Cohen and Patricia Davelouis, and presented by Claudia Cohen.


Vi ses søndag den 21 juni kl 20.00 i CaféTeatret
Skindergade 3 - 1159 København K
Entré: 40 kr. (studerende 20 kr, medlemmer gratis.)
