Film tells story of a young boyís ambition


Cine Latino continues throughout October at the University of Lincoln. The next film in the series tells the tale of a young boy living in Buenos Aires with two ambitions in life - to become an astronaut and to bring true love into his fatherís life.


Valentin will be shown on Monday 15 October at 7pm. The film is set in 1969 and is based around an eight-year-old boy called Valentin living a chaotic life in Argentina.


Valentin lives with his grandmother whilst his father philanders in the city. The young boy is very aware that he is motherless and craves the attention of a woman who could look after him and his father.


In between dreaming about exploring space and working for NASA he hatches a plan to bring life and true love to his father, his family and his eccentric neighbours.


Films coming soon include La Vendedora de Rosas (22 October) and Central Station (29 October).


The films are in Spanish or Portuguese with English subtitles. All films start at 7pm in the Jackson Lecture Theatre, Brayford Pool campus, Lincoln.


Everyone is welcome to come along and all films are free of charge.


The films are organised by the Lincoln Languages Centre, part of the University of Lincolnís Faculty of Business and Law. For more information contact Andy Daglish on 01522 886344 or email adaglish@lincoln.ac.uk
