Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - The Democrats Abroad Academy Award and Documentary Film Series has been extended once again by popular demand, with Puerto Vallarta audience favorites screening at Incanto most every day this week!
Monday, March 18 - Fahrenheit 11/9
Michael Moore's new film about how Americans created the Trump presidency and he doesn't allow the Democrats to make excuses. In the film, he also explores gun violence and various democratic movements that are trying to change things. A must-see film because, as always, Moore challenges our assumptions. (120 minutes)
Tuesday, March 19 - Green Book
When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism and danger - as well as unexpected humanity and humor - they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. (130 minutes)
Thursday, March 21 - Bohemian Rhapsody
A foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as they spiral out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. (134 minutes)
Friday, March 22 - Roma
This is the most personal project to date from Academy Award-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), the film follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. (135 minutes)
