Los Bañistas/Open Cage (2014) Movie and Chat (en español)
Watch Los Bañistas/Open Cage beforehand on Kanopy and join us afterwards for a chat in Spanish on Zoom. All levels of Spanish speakers are welcome (beginner-fluent) and all are encouraged to speak in Spanish as much as is possible. Practice makes perfect!
Open Cage takes a subtle and ultimately hopeful look into one of society's mayor issues: the abandonment of its youth and senior populations. Among those affected when the economy collapses are rebel teenager Flavia and her elderly and grumpy neighbor Martin. Outside the building there is a camp of protesters among whom human values still govern coexistence. However, its members have a serious problem: they need a shower. Flavia, Martin, and their neighbors down the street will learn to relate to each other, not only to survive the crisis, but to rediscover the meaning of their lives.
Not rated, 83 minutes
