Join us on Wednesday evening as we watch Heli at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Hailing from Mexico, Heli gives an insider's perspective into the drug trade and police corruption that has become so prevalent in recent years. Tickets can be purchased online here or at the door for $11 (General Admission) and $9 (MFA members, seniors, and students--don't forget your ID!) Due to the cover charge (to be paid to the museum), we will not be seeking our regular meetup fee of $2 per person.
Hope to see you there!

About the Event
Throughout the month of March, the MFA Boston will host "New Latin American Cinema" exhibition, featuring various films from countries throughout Latin America (from Chile & Argentina to Brazil, to Mexico). For more details, head on over to their website.
Heli by Amat Escalante (Mexico, 2013, 105 min.). Escalante brings a reality of his country into sharp focus in this unflinching portrait of police corruption and drug violence. As romance blooms between a young girl and a police trainee, drugs are suddenly found at her home, and the entire family pays with a heavy physical and psychological price. Winner of Best Director at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
