Can a fabled stone offer another path for Matilde’s life on her Mexican rancho? And the choices we make at mealtime sometimes have a very big impact, especially for a seemingly picky eater with a lot more on his mind in the drama from Spain, Fish. The universal language of wizards bridges cultures from the UK to Cuba in the imaginative doc Spelliasmous.
You’ll experience moving stories and hear how around the world, Spanish stories have their own distinctive flair.
This screening will be part of a regular series of free Sunday afternoon matinee movie screenings, which will also include Kid Flicks 1 (ages 3-7) on Sunday, July 28 and Kid Flicks 2 (ages 8+) on Sunday, August 4.
