"How to be John Malkovich", by Spike Jonze (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.
Monday, August 12: How to be John Malkovich, of Spike Jonze.
Craig Schwartz's life is coming to the end of a cycle. Craig is a street puppetist with great talent, but he has the impression that his life is meaningless. New York has changed a lot and people don't pay much attention. She has been married to Lotte for ten years, who works in an animal shop and is obsessed with her work. He manages to find work on the 7'5 floor of the Mertin-Flemmer building in Manhattan, where he finds a small door that allows him access to a secret corridor that aspires to him and allows him to access John Malkovich's brain.
