In celebration of the National Day of Mexican Cinema and in collaboration with Nueva Vida, join the MCI for an official screening of El ángel en el reloj (The Angel in the Clock) by Mexican director Miguel Ángel Uriegas on Thursday, August 15 at 6:45 pm. 

Synopsis: The Angel in the Clock tells the story about Amelia, a girl with leukaemia that wants to stop time. As she attempts to do so, she meets Malachi, an angel that lives inside her cuckoo clock. Malachi will take Amelia to the Fields of Time, a fantastic world where hundreds of clock-castles soar the sky, guarding human time on earth. In this world, Amelia will learn to appreciate the importance of the concept of "here" and "now", the wonderful things that the present give us to move forward every day and to fight for what we want the most. A tale of acceptance, withdrawal and hope.
