Tucson Cine Mexico, the United States' longest running festival celebrating contemporary Mexican cinema, will take place March 22 - 26. Join us for a selection of the best new Mexican comedies, thrillers and documentaries.
The 2017 Opening Night film will be Bellas de Noche / Beauties of the Night. The award-winning new documentary, directed by Maria José Cuevas, charts the past and present lives of Rossy Mendoza, Olga Breeskin, Wanda Seux, Lyn May and Princesa Yamal, the Mexico City showgirls who were propelled beyond their cabaret stages to national fame in the 1970s and 80s. Cuevas' directorial debut, an intimate portrait of fame and post-fame life, collected the awards for Best Documentary, Best Documentary by a Woman, and the Guerrero Press Award at its screening at the recent Morelia International Film Festival. The Tucson Cine Mexico screening on March 24 will mark the film's Arizona Premiere. With Maria José Cuevas in person.
