During the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, Canadian-born cinematographer Alex Phillips (Ontario, 1900) and Spanish-born film director Luis Buñuel (Aragón, 1900), became symbols for Mexican cinema. They worked together twice: on Ascent to Heaven (1952, screens at 6.30pm) and Robinson Crusoe (1954, 8.15pm).

Tickets for this co-presentation are available exclusively through www.vlaff.org and on the door. Vancity Theatre memberships do apply.

The night of September 26, 2014, in the city of Iguala, Guerrero, in Mexico, more the 100 young students were attacked by police forces, resulting in 3 students dying, more then 20 injured, and 43 kidnapped by the police. The Mexican military is also implicated in this crime. In their testimony two student survivors of the Iguala massacre reconstruct the climate of impunity, corruption, and criminality that exists, not only in the state of Guerrero but in the entire country.
