UCLA presents recent films from Latin America and the Iberian peninsula. A couple highlights:
Mr. Kaplan, Uruguay
A hilarious, crowd-pleasing black comedy revolving around a Jewish retiree who is convinced that the shy, old German owner of a local seafront restaurant is in fact a former Nazi. After fleeing Europe for Uruguay during WWII, Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life. Now 76, he begins to question his worth.
I am from Chile, Chile/UK
Salvador is a young Chilean who moves to London to study English and travel around Europe. While in London, he stays with his aunt Maria, an immature and alcoholic 55 year old woman. When Salvador's parents face unexpected economic hardship, it threatens to cut short their son's London experience. Seduced by what the city has to offer, Salvador refuses to return to Chile.
