Founded in 1999, Melbourne Filmoteca is an independent, non-profit, volunteer-run group that holds monthly screenings of Latin American and Spanish films at ACMI cinemas in Federation Square, Melbourne, Australia.
Melbourne Filmoteca aims to provide a space for people with a broad range of interests and backgrounds to appreciate film, language, music and cultures from Spain and Latin America.
Film screenings are generally the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm, except for January and August, when we do not present any film.
Rosario Castellanos is an introverted university student who doesn’t seem to belong to her time. In the early 1950s in Mexico City, she is fighting to have her voice heard in a society run by men. She is about to become one of the biggest female writers in Mexican literature, but her tumultuous love story with Ricardo Guerra will manifest her fragility and contradictions. At the peak of her career and her marriage, she will ignite a discussion that will mark a turning point in her life.
Tickets to Melbourne Filmoteca opening night include drink on arrival and admission to after party in ACMI Cafe & Bar
