The Best of Latin American Short Films
The Gables Cinema brings the New York International Children’s Film Festival back to Miami with the wonderful compilation of nine short films in ¡Viva NYICFF! The Best of Latin American Short Films on Saturday & Sunday, November 14 and 15 at 11:00 am as part of our Family Day on Aragon series! This special series has been curated for Miami audiences, allowing viewers to enjoy films from around the world in Spanish, Portuguese, and Catalan with English subtitles. At The Opera (En La Opera, Argentina), a particularly moving night at the opera, guarantees to move you to tears; Journey To Mars (Viaje A Marte, Argentina) Antonio takes a trip to Mars (in his tow truck, no less) but nobody believes him; Grandma Grasshopper (Abuella Grillo, Bolivia/Denmark) A little city girl learns that it is our roots that give us strength; My Queen (Minha Rainha, Brazil) A young girl looks forward to her big debut evening, flag-dancing in the carnival; Fifteen (Quince Años, Mexico) It’s Vianney’s quinceañera and she is getting ready for her party, but she is not alright, and more! All shorts are appropriate for ages 9 and up.
Beloved classics and new favorites for the whole family to enjoy! Family Day on Aragon takes place every second Saturday and Sunday and is hosted by the Coral Gables Museum, Books & Books and the Coral Gables Art Cinema. Check with our Aragon neighbors for information on activities taking place at their venues. Tickets to these films are $5 general admission and include a free popcorn and soda.
