The Mexican Cultural Institute invites you to the second showing of The Eternal Feminine by Natalia Beristáin on December 12th, which was presented as part of Films Across Borders: Stories of Women, a film series happening across Washington until December 18th.

Join us for the inauguration of our new projector, donated by American University.

Synopsis:
"Rosario Castellanos is an introverted university student who doesn't seem to belong to her time. In the early 1950s in Mexico City, she is fighting to have her voice heard in a society run by men. She is about to become one of the biggest female writers in Mexican literature, but her tumultuous love story with Ricardo Guerra will manifest her fragility and contradictions. At the peak of her career and her marriage, she will ignite a discussion that will mark a turning point in her life."

The film will be presented in Spanish with English subtitles.

Seating is limited, please arrive with your free RSVP ticket for admittance.
