|Venue:||Tower Theater, 1508 SW 8th Street, Little Havana|
Private screening for Miami Dade County public school teachers and students features 2011 film, Un Cuento Chino. In this comedic and touching take on the immigrant experience, Argentine superstar Ricardo Darín plays Roberto, a gruff, anti-social loner who encounters distressed and lost Chinese stowaway, Jun. Through the search for Jun's missing family, Roberto and Jun deal with a culture clash of epic proportions and in the process realize the power of humanity and decency. Screening followed by Q&A and curricular session that provides resources for integrating the film and its themes into the classroom. Co-sponsored by LACC, Miami International Film Festival, Miami Dade College and Miami Dade County Public Schools. By invitation only.
