Black Cinema Club presents . . .
"Chico & Rita"
Director: Fernando Trueba, Javier Mariscal and Tono Errando
Starring Eman Xor Oña and Limara Meneses
Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey - in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero - brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love. (via IMDB)
Black Cinema Club is a quarterly event held on the first Sunday of each month for those with an appreciation for film and black culture.
During each gathering, we'll show a film significant to the black experience: culturally, socially, and/or politically. There will be a post-screening discussion that digs into the synopsis, themes, and subject matter of the film.
