Event Details

A Better Jamaica is pleased to present a new film series -- Cinema en Español. Join us as we salute Jamaica's Spanish speaking population by presenting a series of Spanish language films -- with English subtitles for those who simply enjoy a good foreign film. The second film up is "Innocent Voices".

Movie Synopsis: The bloody civil war which tore apart El Salvador in the 1980s is seen through the eyes of a young boy in this drama from director Luis Mandoki. Chava (Carlos Padilla) is 11 years old and growing up in a small town in El Salvador where the fighting between rebels and government troops is a daily fact of life. Chava's father has abandoned the famnily, leaving him behind as the man of the house while his mother (Leonor Varela) and sister try to maintain a normal life by day while dodging bullets by night. Chava's 12th birthday is coming up, which puts the boy in a dangerous position -- at 12, he'll be old enough to join the army and be used as cannon fodder against the rebels, so he and his classmates try to find out when military recruiters will be coming to their schools so they can plan to be absent that day. However, as Chava faces both danger and adventure in his little town, the war edges in closer all the time until it can't be avoided any longer. Directed by Luis Mandoki. (2004 - 120 Minutes)
