‘Chico and Rita’ at the MLFS

This Thursday, the Magic Lantern Film Society in Derry brings a Latin feel to the programme with a screening of animated feature Chico and Rita – the winner of Best Animated Feature at the Spanish Academy Awards in Cuba,1948.

Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment. Chico and Rita is an artfully made romantic drama that captures the hearts and imaginations of its audience through its storytelling as well as its animation.

The film commences at 7:00pm at the Nerve Centre, Magazine Street and admission is £3. For more information on all screenings and membership you can drop into the Nerve Centre; follow them on Facebook or Twitter; or email infomagiclantern@gmail.com.
