Here is a link to the trailer, as well as a description of the film:
A heartfelt story, Guaraní follows fisherman Atilio as he travels with his granddaughter Iara to Buenos Aires. His great desire is to have a grandson to transmit the Guaraní culture. When he discovers that Iara’s mother, Helena, is pregnant, he decides to go on Based on a true story, The Boss, Anatomy of a Murder is a neo-realistic portrait of the inhumane work environment, and the power imbalances existing between worker and employer. The multiple award-winning film tells the unsettling story of Hermógenes, a long journey and cross borders, with the aim to convince Helena to give birth in the Guarani land… Directed by talent to watch Luis Zorraquín, Guaraní features an outstanding script. Part road movie and part coming-ofage drama, the film portrays a humble illiterate farmhand who arrives in Buenos Aires in search of a job. Having been filled with self-deprecation and feelings of uselessness ever since he was stamped “not apt” on his military papers because of his limp, Hermógenes doesn’t expect two generations of Paraguayans whose views of the world seem centuries apart. The long journey will make Atilio and Iara understand the real meaning of traditions and family bonds.
Free admission. First come, first served. Light snacks and refreshments will be served!
