The Cine Casual Film Series presents internationally-acclaimed and award-winning Latin American films, specially curated for the Queen City.
Victor Hugo works in a cigar factory; Candelaria is a hotel laundress and singer. When Candelaria comes upon an abandoned camcorder she and Victor Hugo start to discover its possibilities for posterity, expression— and the revival of romance. The camera’s lens becomes an extension of Victor Hugo’s eye, allowing him to really see his wife for the first time in years— at least until the camcorder is stolen, an event which leads the couple into territory neither could have imagined.
Film screening will be followed by a panel discussion on ageism and love in the last stages of life with guests.
