Kino Světozor‘s ‘Catch-Up Tuesday’ and English language film blog Movie Barf, by popular demand, are going to present a second English friendly screening of the new Alfonso Cuarón film ROMA in the big screening hall.
ROMA chronicles a year in the life of Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a quiet young maid for a wealthy family in Mexico City in the 1970s, who falls pregnant after an unfortunate affair. Her journey only becomes more complicated when it becomes caught up in the violence of Mexico’s politics.
Based on a true story and directed by Mexican auteur Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men), the critically acclaimed ROMA has already won multiple awards for its stunning portrayal of the life and the political turbulence in Mexico at that time, and its masterful use of black and white and captivating cinematography. The film recently won two Golden Globes and is also set to sweep the Oscars. ROMA is undeniably one of the best films of 2018.
The screening will have both Czech and English subtitles.
Catch-Up Tuesday presents contemporary foreign films with English subtitles every Tuesday in Kino Světozor.
