We had a superb night last Saturday! The movie was amusing, the appetizers and the light dinner were really good, and everyone had very interesting insights about the movie!
Don not miss the chance of having a great Saturday night here in La Manzanilla before the year ends! Watch "El Norte"...
... a realistic picture of both the Guatemalan government's oppression of the Quiche Indians and the hard life of illegal immigrants in the United States. After the Guatemalan army destroys their village of San Pedro, two teenage Quiche Mayan Indian siblings journey north (hence El Norte) through Mexico to the United States to start a new life. Realizing that the government is seizing their land, Enrique and Rosa make the difficult decision to leave their people behind. As they journey through Mexico, the siblings encounter a number of helpful individuals who direct them towards the U.S./Mexican border.
This film will definitely keep you laughing till the end. Hope to see you all at the Multi-Cultural Center, Palapa floor at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available at the Art Gallery from Tuesday to Saturday, 10:00-2:00 and 4:00-6:00p.m. Also, remember to come with an empty stomach as there will be delicious light Mexican dinner served immediately after the film.
