This month we will be showing a film from Mexico in honor of Mexican Independence Day. The title of the film is The Violin. (2005) 98 minutes.
Description: Don Plautarco (Ángel Tavira), his son Genaro (Gerardo Taracena) and grandson Lucio (Mario Garibaldi) earn a living as traveling musicians while also smuggling weapons to rebels fighting the country's oppressive regime. But when they return home to find their town occupied by the army and the residents forced into hiding, they make a bold play to recover the ammunition the troops have seized. Francisco Vargas directs.
Join us for some great Mexican food and a great presentation given by Leeanne Vezzani-Katano on the history and culture of Mexico.
This event is sponsored by the Spanish for Activists Class at San Jose Peace and Justice Center
