First Wednesday Film Series

Wednesday, May 6, at 12:15

This prize-winning film, "Lake Tahoe," features Juan, a teenager who crashes his family's car into a telegraph pole on the outskirts of town. During his search for someone to help him repair it, he meets three unusual people and comes to accept what he was escaping from - an event both as natural and inexplicable as a loved one's death. (Film is in Spanish with English subtitles.)
