Sunday, June 14

PLEASE NOTE: The 35mm  English subtitled print of RIO ESCONDIDO originally scheduled is unusable; the only print available has French subtitles only. For the benefit of our Spanish-speaking (and French-reading) audience members, we are screening RIO ESCONDIDO once only.

(1947, Emilio Fernández) On a personal mission from the Presidente to bring education to a remote village, María Félix’s ailing but dedicated schoolteacher squares off with a brutal land baron whose peasant management methods include denying water to the farmers — and as a rape attempt, shooting, and peasant revolt ensue, she comes back harder. IN SPANISH WITH FRENCH SUBTITLES ONLY. Approx. 99 min. 35mm.
