Film: Chico & Rita
January 12, 2017
A lifelong affair of the heart between Chico, a piano player, and Rita, a vocalist, takes the protagonists through “Havana in its pre-Fidel days of big spenders, New York in the heyday of jazz, Paris when foreign musicians were hot, [and] Vegas in its early golden years.” Essentially constructed as a musical, the indie production was nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
