Viva Cinema: Tesoros

  • pin Bullock Texas State History Museum 1800 Congress Ave, Austin, Texas 78701 (map)

Join us for a screening and conversation about the film Tesoros (Treasures).

Known as the most successful woman director of Mexican cinema, María Novaro's film Tesoros follows the story of a band of kids that live in a fishing community on the coast of Guerrero, Mexico, and their adventure to find a treasure that the pirate Francis Drake hid in the region four centuries ago. This is a story about more than a treasure chest; it is one that leads us to a world of optimism, solidarity and imagination. 

This evening's program includes a film screening and Skype Q&A with the film's producer, Paula Guindea, and guest moderator Jean Anne Lauer, Cine Las Americas Festival Director. Come early at 6pm for a welcome reception.

Viva Cinema celebrates the modern cinema of Mexico and beyond. The Bullock Texas State History Museum is proud to highlight acclaimed films co-presented with Cine Las Americas that feature the rich tradition of Spanish-language movie-making. Films in the Viva Cinema Series are presented in Spanish with English subtitles.

Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX lobby doors.
