Not So Modern Times - Environmental Filmfest at Embassy of Argentina

In honor of the new Pope and the wonderful Environmental Film Festival, let's head to the Embassy of Argentina for what looks to be a really good film titled Not So Modern Times. It won the Gold Prize at the Pantella Pinamar Film festival last year. This was from a review there: It "follows the story of a solitary man in Patagonia. Payagula, the central character, lives a humble life until one day he receives a satellite dish that will change his perceptions of the world forever. The story is simple and beautiful and is an Argentine, Chilean and German co-production."

We can have our own reception after at one of the many restaurants in the area. The Embassy is 2 blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro North exit, walking straight east on Q St. Entrance is free and there are no reservations. The film starts at 6:30 but I would try to get there between 6 and 6:15, if possible - I don't think they have the biggest screening room in the world.

Washington, D.C. Premiere.
Argentina. 95 min.
In Spanish and Tehuelche with English subtitles.
In a remote cabin in the Patagonian Andes, Payaguala, an elderly native Tehuelche gaucho, lives a solitary and contented life. He enjoys his independence, tending his sheep and chickens, and occasionally playing the guitar for visiting tourists. One day the Ministry of Social Development sends him a package. He ignores it indifferently until his only friend, the traveling peddler Felipe, visits. The contents of the package, a television and a telephone, invade his little cabin and turn his life upside down.

    Looking forward to film tonight! As I wrote, best if you can get there between 6 and 6:15. My number is[masked]-7494. If our group is big, we may go to Nando Peri Peri after, just north of the Circle. They had a nice big room for us on a Friday a few weeks ago.
