Democrats Abroad Sponsors Film Series


The Democrats Abroad Weekly Film Series continues through April 6, 2016 at the International Friendship Club in downtown Puerto Vallarta, Libertad 105. The popular series features first-run films shown on Wednesday nights at 7pm.

Here’s a look at the movies that will be playing in March and April:

March 16, 2016 – Iron Jawed Angels
This movie tells the remarkable and little-known story of a group of passionate and dynamic young women, led by Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) and her friend Lucy Burns (Frances O’Connor), who put their lives on the line to fight for American women’s right to vote. The young activists struggle with issues such as the challenges of protesting a popular President during wartime and the perennial balancing act between love and career.

March 23, 2016 – Calvary
A marvelous showcase for Brendan Gleeson who plays a parish priest and a very good man, threatened with murder by an unseen person avenging priest pedophilia. Calvary unfolds like a ticking clock or a murder mystery in reverse, as Father James tends to his affairs in what may be his final week alive.

March 30, 2016 – La Dictadura Perfecta
TV MX, the most powerful Mexican Television Corporation, discloses a scandalous story involving Governor Carmelo Vargas in serious crimes and illicit business. Governor Vargas worried about his political future, decides to clean his image and negotiates a billionaire secret agreement with the owners of the TV Corporation. Carlos Rojo, an ambitious young news producer, and Ricardo Diaz, TV network star reporter, are responsible for making a dirty campaign to change the image the public has of the corrupt Governor and make him, at any cost, a political star and a great presidential candidate.

April 6, 2016 – Breach
A feature documentary film that asks, “Have we learned enough from our past to save the last, great wild salmon runs on the planet?” The cinematography is spellbinding.
