See two outstanding international films at a Providence Latin American Film Festival preview on Friday, August 18 and Saturday, August 19.
On August 18, enjoy the Argentinian coming-of-age picture Valentín (2002). Abandoned by his parents and living with his grandmother, nine-year-old Valentín sets out to fix the problems around him with imagination and good cheer.
On August 19, see the Spanish drama Los lunes al sol or Mondays in the Sun (2002). A group of middle-aged men who are suddenly jobless, refuse to sink into self-pity as they search for a place in a world that no longer needs them.
Both films are in Spanish with English subtitles.
On Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30, the Providence Latin American Film Festival will return to the library with more spectacular movies.
This event is free and open to all.
