The Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies and the Embassy of Mexico present the film screening:

“Cinco dias sin Nora” (Nora’s Will)
Directed by Mariana Chenillo

Time: 6:30pm

Date: Thursday 29 November

Location: Manning Clark Centre, Theatre 2, ANU



This story begins when Jose finds out that Nora, the woman he'd been married to for 30 years and then divorced, has committed suicide. The rabbi explains to Jose that due to the celebration of the Passover festivities, together with a few other factors, if Nora is not buried that same day, they will have to wait almost five days to be able to carry out the burial. It turns out that before she died, Nora devised a Machiavellian plan in order for him to take care of her funeral. But she missed something; a mysterious photograph left under the bed will lead to an unexpected outcome which will remind us that sometimes the greatest love stories are hidden in the smallest places.

The Film is in Spanish with English subtitles. 

Admission is free. No RSVP required.
