This Saturday, July 6, at 7:00 p.m. at Casa Hass, the cycle: Animation for Adults comes to an end, with the screening of the Australian film “Mary & Max” by director Adam Elliot.
The film tells the life of Mary Daisy Dinkle, a lonely eight year old girl ,with an absent father and a dominant mother; one day leafing through a phone book at the post office, she chooses a random name: Max Jerry Horovitz from New York and decides to send him a letter, beginning an unusual transcontinental friendship. A friendship that both Max and Mary desperately need. Mary, with a birthmark on her forehead, suffers terrible abuse at home and at school, while Max, an obese, lonely, afflicted and misunderstood man, shows severe difficulties in social interaction and communication, all this in function of his condition, Asperger’s syndrome.
“Mary & Max” is an act of tenderness that will last long after the credits end.
The film is shown in its original language, English with subtitles in Spanish. Free admission with limited space.
