Virtual Spanish Film Festival: Y Tu Mamá También
Tuesday, Oct. 19, 7-9:30 p.m.
It has been twenty years since the making of And Your Mother Too, which became one of the iconic films that marked the birth of the so-called New Mexican Cinema. Abandoned by their girlfriends for the summer, rich teenagers Tenoch and Julio meet older woman Luisa at a wedding. To impress Luisa, the friends tell her they are headed on a road trip to a beautiful, secret beach called Boca del Cielo (Heaven’s Mouth).
Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón directed this social drama with high doses of black comedy, perhaps the most unclassifiable and personal of his entire career, until the arrival of Roma (2018), which confirmed Cuarón as one of the great contemporary film talents and one of the most important Mexican directors in history.
