Join us Thursday, Jan. 13 at 6:30 p.m. for a screening of “1981” in Central Library Auditorium, presented by Cross Cultural Cinema.
This cheeky, coming-of-age comedy tells the story of 11-year-old Ricardo, who in 1981, struggles to fit in at his new school. With a flair for inventiveness and a desperate desire to impress his classmates, Ricardo weaves a web of untruths, which he must carefully maintain to keep up appearances. But when reality finally catches up with him, Ricardo is forced to come to terms with his true self.
By Ricardo Trogi; In French with English subtitles, 102 minutes.
