Cosford screening: Lake Tahoe

7:00 pm
4:30 pm
2:00 pm

Sixteen-year-old Juan crashes his family’s car into a telegraph pole on the outskirts of his small town in Yucatan, then scours the streets searching for someone to help him fix it. His quest will bring him to Don Heber, a paranoid elderly mechanic whose only companion is his boxer dog, Sica; to Lucía, a young mother who is convinced that her real place in life is as a lead singer in a punk band; and to “The One who Knows,” a teenage mechanic obsessed with martial arts and Kung Fu philosophy. The absurd and bewildering worlds of these characters pull Juan into a one-day journey in which he will come to accept what he was escaping from in the first place–an event both as natural and inexplicable as a loved one’s death. In Spanish with English subtitles. Admission is $6 for all UM alumni, faculty, and staff, and is free for students. General admission is $8. The film screens on Friday, August 7 at 7 p.m., Saturday, August 8 at 4:30 and 9 p.m. and Sunday, August 9 at 2 and 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit
