Noon – 2 p.m.

Elsa and Fred / Elsa y Fred
Spain / Argentina / 2005 / 106 min.
Directed by Marcos Carnevale
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Spanish with English subtitles

Fred is 78 years old and a recent widower. Elsa says she is younger, but then again, Elsa says many things. However, she is bound and determined to change Fred. Elsa…does not reveal much. She will make him laugh though, something he has not done for many years. They will fall in love, scandalizing their children and perhaps even their grandchildren.

2:30 – 4:30 p.m.

The Student / El Estudiante 
Mexico / 2008 / 98 min.
Director: Roberto Girault
Genre: Comedy
Spanish with English subtitles
This comedy captures the adventure of Chano (Jorge Lavat), a retired 70-year-old man who decides, after mixed recommendations from his family, to enroll at the historic University of Guanajuato. His presence, initially quite surprising, has an impact on his classmates and eventually breaches the generational gap. Chano gives his college classmates advice, at times even by force and in the process learns a few lessons along the way.

This event is sponsored by the Latino Cultural Center.
