LIVE-IN MAID / Argentina
WEDNESDAY JULY 8, 2015 | Pre-screening performance begins at 7PM
Norma Aleandro, the grande dame of Argentine cinema (think Meryl Streep crossed with Penelope Cruz) plays a still-elegant haute-bourgeois divorcée, living in a fashionable Buenos Aires apartment, surrounded by a lifetime of consumer goods, but with little cash. Her maid of 30 years massages her feet and freshens her drinks — but makes moves to abandon this sinking ship when the going gets tough. This is a wonderful comedy of class consciousness and codependency that easily and subtly crosses cultural boundaries.
2005, 83 minutes. Directed by Jorge Gaggero.
Programmed by Film Forum.
PRE-SCREENING PERFORMANCE – 7PM:
Adam Tully Trio + guest singer Sofia Tosello
“Adam Tully’s skills as a guitarist, arranger, and composer are equaled by his experience and credentials in the world of Latin American music. Hailed for the “remarkable versatility and ease with which he negotiates styles from Bach to flamenco,” Adam is respected as a concert soloist, and considered a valuable collaborator by his fellow musicians in the realm of Argentine Tango.”
MUNDO BEGINS SERVING AT 6:30:
Astoria’s own Mundo takes its inspiration from the exotic markets of the world and the comfort of homemade international dishes. Mysterious, adventurous, and decadent, savor our signature eclectic cuisine: a wholesome and sumptuous blend of Mediterranean and Latin influences.
