7TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL FILM SERIES
You never know where life will take you.
THE ROLLING FAMILY
Argentina, no rating, 103 minutes
Sunday, March 16 | 7:30 PM
When an octogenerian grandmother is invited to be the matron of honor at the wedding of a distant niece, she squeezes four generations of her family into a dilapidated 1956 Chevy Viking camper for a cross-country road trip teeming with domestic discord. During the long, stiflingly hot journey from Buenos Aires to Misiones, their destination along the border of Argentina and Brazil, they encounter all manner of problems and people, from rekindling old family feuds to wild cowboys on the Pampas.
Special presentation: Photographs taken by underprivileged teens enrolled in PH 15, a photography program on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, will be on display and for sale in the theater lobby with proceeds to benefit the program. Similar to the film Born Into Brothels, PH15 teaches teenagers living in Villa 15 (slum 15, also known as the ¨Hidden City¨) how to use photography as a language for communicating ideas about their lives and environment to a broader audience. Villa 15 is one of the hundreds of shantytowns housing the 19 million Argentines who have fallen below the poverty line during the economic decline of the past decade.
