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)

ABOUT BCC:

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.
