Calling all film buffs. Over the few remaining days of July, cultural centers and museums throughout Buenos Aires are hosting several events set on sharing the art of cinema with the public.
Savage Cartoons, National Museum of Beauty Art
On Sunday, July 23, 2017, the Friend Association of the National Museum of Fine Art has curated a series called Savage Cartoons (Cartoon Salvaje). This event includes mostly adult animation, such as South Park, Bigger, and Longer & Uncut, but incorporates a family aspect as well. My Neighbor Totoro, a playful adventure of a little girl learning to deal with tragedy, will be shown several times before the adult content is displayed. Until July 30, 2017, become animated with the Friend Association this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for just 60 pesos.
Labyrinth, San Martín Cultural Center
Any fan of Jim Henson, creator of The Muppets, wouldn’t miss a screening of the Labyrinth (Laberinto) on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, at 4:30 PM. The 80’s cult classic takes a young girl through a long journey to rescue her baby brother. It’s definitely exciting viewing the film for the first time. The Labyrinth reminds the audience to be careful what they wish for, yet any audience will be left wishing to see this film again. General admission costs 50 pesos.
