Cinito – Cine Club
Cinito – cine club – is a space for projection and dialogue based on the curatorial cycles of classic and contemporary cinema. The idea is to host art films and documentaries and after the showing, to have a discussion with the public. Sol Castañeda, who has a Masters degree in Cultural Management from the Universidad Iberoamericana located in México, will be the host and moderator for the evening.
The cine club is a project that begins with the objective of generating talk among the public to discuss various topics of general interest. So every month there will be a theme, from social movements, minorities and environmental impact, among other issues of global relevance.
In the first two films the issue is about identity. With these films, the public is invited to reflect not only on historical but also contemporary events that affect our lives and the environment in which we live.
