CINE LATINO IS BACK

 

The University of Lincolnís popular Cine Latino series is back and presenting exclusive Latin American films which are not available on DVD in the UK.

 

Cine Latino kicks off with Herodís Law (La Ley de Herodes) a black comedy about the corruption of Mexican politicians on Monday 26th February.

 

To start with, the corrupt mayor of a desert town in central Mexico is killed by peasants and a poor janitor Juan Vargas is appointed as the new mayor. He desperately tries to bring modernity, peace and progress to the town but soon realises there is nothing he can do to stop the corruption.

 

Step by step Juan Vargas becomes the worst, most corrupt mayor in the townís history.

 

Other up and coming films in the series include Bolivia, The Dark Side of the Heart and Pizza, Beer and Smokes. All of the films shown are exclusive Latin American films in Spanish with English subtitles.

 

All Cine Latino films start at 7.00pm in the Jackson Lecture Theatre, Main Academic Building, Brayford Pool campus. Everyone is welcome to attend and admission is free.
