Our collective love for the talented,amazing,beautiful (etc, etc.) BFFs Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna knows no bounds and their friendship is a gift that keeps on giving. Strong supporters of film and the art world, they created Ambulante in 2005, a non-profit organization that supports and promotes documentary film and story-telling as tools for social and cultural advancement and awareness.

In conjunction with the Latin American art department at LACMA, Ambulante is presenting a special film program, spanning through May 10th and 11th, showcasing 4 award-winning films by women filmmakers in Mexico. Directly following the films, some of the young directors will be present to take part in discussions with the audience.

On May 10 at 8:00 p.m., El General (The General) by Natalia Almada will screen, followed by Intimidades De Shakespeare y Victor Hugo by Yulene Olaizola at 9:30 p.m. On May 11 at 5:00 p.m., Tatiana Huezo will present her film El lugar más pequeño, followed with a screening of Mi Vida Dentro by Lucia Gaja.

All of the screenings are free of charge, but you must reserve tickets for the individual films on the LACMA page.
