Film in the Park: The Amazing Catfish -Mexico

July 16, 2014 @ 8:15 pm - 10:00 pm


Bring your friends and family to Calumet Park Wednesday night for the screening of the great comedy The Amazing Catfish/Los Insólitos Peces Gatos from Mexico.

Mexico | 2013 | 90 min.
Director: Claudia Sainte-Luce
Genre: Comedy
Spanish with English subtitles

Winner of the International Critics’ Award (FIPRESCI-Discovery) at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, Claudia Sainte-Luce’s feature debut tells the story of ailing matriarch Martha who, after befriending introvert Claudia in a hospital room, adopts her as a new member of her unruly family. Claudia soon becomes Martha’s caregiver and the oldest sister to four kids from three different fathers, fitting into this rambunctious household as naturally as if she had been born in it. Beautifully shot by veteran cinematographer Agnès Godard, “The Amazing Catfish” is a charming and heartbreaking look at what makes a family work.
