New Wave in Mexican Cinema


San Francisco gets treated to an outstanding selection of Mexican indies this December.  Teenage wanna-be rockers in Somos Mari Pepa; pain and redemption in ultra-low-budget Las Busquedas; wandering souls in Las hora muertas; and a heart-wrenching documentary about children with mental illnesses, El cuarto desnudo.

Check them all out at the Yerba Buena Cultural Center.

San Francisco: Dec. 4 - 21. Full details here.
