This month we will be showing a comedy film taking place in Uruguay titled "The Pope's Toilet / El Bano de Papa" (2007) NR
It is 1988, and Melo, a Uruguayan town on the Brazilian border, awaits the visit of Pope John Paul II. Numbers begin circulating: hundreds of people will come, no thousands say the media. To the poor citizens of Melo this means pilgrims in need of food and drink, paper flags, souvenirs, and commemorative medals. Brimming with enthusiasm, the locals hope not only for divine blessing but also a small share of material happiness. Petty smuggler Beto is certain that he’s found the best business idea of all: “The Pope’s Toilet”, where the thousands of pilgrims can find relief.
Come learn about Uruguay and enjoy traditional food!
Suggested Donation: $5-10 (no one turned away for lack of funds)
