Screening of Mexican film “La Perla”

Held on Friday, 27th August, 2010 at 6.30 pm

Bangalore International Centre had arranged screening of a Mexican film “La Perla”(1945) directed by Mr. Emilio Fernandez, offered by FFSI on 27th Aug, 2010 at 6:30 pm.

Based on a famous story by John Steinbeck, the film was a stark portrayal of life in a Mexican fishing village where the discovery of a pearl by a poor fisherman turned his world upside down. The black-and white- film, directed with sensitivity, brought out in sharp focus the frailties of human nature and the stunning spectacle of Mexican topography in all its splendour.

The small, but discerning audience enjoyed the film.
