March 31st, 6:45 pm at the Mexican Cultural Institute


The Mexican Cultural Institute is proud to present the film Carmita as part of AACIA's Iberoamerican Film Festival. Carmita, directed by Israel Cárdenas and Laura Amelia Guzmán, is representing the Dominican Republic at this year's festival.

Carmita, an 80 year Cuban actress exiled in Mexico lives in her mansion in ruins. She's strong enough to appear on TV, reply her fan mail and complain about her ex husband, who ruined her dream of a possible Hollywood career. The unexpected visit of Laura and Israel allows us to discover a world trapped in the golden age memories.
