"Children of men", by Alfonso Cuarón (VOS) (Cinema)
The Doctor Madrazo cultural center organizes a new cycle of eight films, which will be entitled The desire to travel . The projections will be offered on Mondays of July and August, in original subtitled version, and with free admission until full capacity is reached.
The cycle will be divided into two thematic blocks. The first, entitled Next Stop , consists of four films whose plots are developed in places of the world so inspiring that they end up becoming one more character. The four have as scenario those exotic and different destinations that we all dream of knowing ... and feeling like our own. Pack your bags, because we are going to Tokyo, Hawaii, Kenya or the French Riviera.
The second block is entitled More than science fiction, and its four films propose paths that lead us to other worlds. Some of those worlds appear as potentially real; others are, perhaps, parallel universes. In any case we always travel; to other planets, to other dimensions, within ourselves.

Year 2027: the human being is on the verge of extinction: men have lost the ability to procreate and it is unknown why all women on the planet have become sterile.

In such circumstances, Theo (Clive Owen), a disillusioned ex-radical London activist turned bureaucrat, is hired by Julian (Julianne Moore) to protect a woman who can have the secret of humanity's salvation, the person most valuable on Earth ...
