For our second week, we are screening Argentinian comedy Un cuento chino/Chinese Take-Out (Sebasti??n Borenzstein, 2012). Roberto, the grouchy owner of a hardware store in Buenos Aires, leads a lonely and quiet life. One day, he meets by chance a Chinese man named Jun who has just arrived to the city looking for his only living relative. Roberto speaks no Chinese; Jun speaks no Spanish. And yet, they need to understand each other. More info on IMDb; more info at the Spanish Film Club website.

The screening will be introduced by Professor Marisa Kalbermatten (MLLC/Spanish). After the film, all guests are invited to stay for a panel discussion. There'll be popcorn as well!
