Hablemos de Cine

El cine club ya está aquí.

La UNAM Chicago te invita a participar en un club de conversación de español en una forma divertida. La UNAM escoge cinco peliculas con un tema unificador entre ellas, en esta ocasión el tema es: Cuba a través de la música. Se hará una breve introducción, siempre en español, y se proyectará la película. Al finalizar, se comentarán puntos importantes sobre lo acontecido en el filme, dando paso a que los miembros del grupo hablen en español.

Se presentará una pelicula los martes cada dos semanas comenzando el Martes 8 de Octubre.

100 Sones Cubanos - (2010) - 81 min

Viva Cuba - (2005) - 80 min

In a tale akin to Romeo and Juliet, the friendship between two children is
threatened by their parents' differences. Malu is from an upper-class family and her
single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background coarse and commonplace. Jorgito's mother is a poor socialist that is proud of her family's social standing. They decide to travel to the other side of the island to find Malu's father.
