Event Description

The San Pedro Waterfront Arts District invites the community to join us at the next chapter of a new arts education series at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium called [email protected]: Arts Adventures for the Culturally Curious.

Join arts scholar Gregorio Luke as he leads us through three films by Oscar winning Mexican directors in seminars designed to promote a deeper appreciation of the arts of Mexico.

The first movie in the 2019 film seminar series is GRAVITY by Alfonso Cuarón on Sunday, January 27th, 2019, 3:30pm. Cuarón confronts the extraordinary challenge of recreating a world without gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

On Thursday, January 17th, 2019 6:00pm – 9:00pm Mexican film fans can also participate in a very special Potluck Film Salon at the home of Gregorio and Lyndee Luke. Gregorio will screen a relevant Alfonso Cuarón film and lead a discussion about Cuaron’s work. You are encouraged to show off your Mexican culinary skills by bringing a savory dish to share with the other guests. Ticket are limited to 25 patrons and we will contact you to coordinate the food.
This exploration of the contributions of Mexican artists continues during 2019 when Mr. Luke will offer his insight and analysis of three Oscar-winning films by contemporary Mexican directors:

BIRDMAN by Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, Sunday, March 24th, 2019, 3:30pm. Perhaps the best film expression of magical realism, a literary movement that defined Latin American literature.

SHAPE OF WATER by Guillermo del Toro, Sunday, May 19th, 2019, 3:30pm. Del Toro demonstrates a deep knowledge of the Monster genre but so too the courage to transform it.
