Synopsis: There is a boarding house on the corner of Shakespeare and Victor Hugo Streets in Mexico City owned by Rosa Carbajal, a place that hides an intimate and passionate story. This is the setting where Rosa met Jorge Riosse twenty years before, a young tenant who became her closest friend. INTIMACIES OF SHAKESPEARE AND VICTOR HUGO is a profound sketch of two characters, lonely in their own way, or in spite of themselves, strongly and strangely entwined.

CineNoche is a film series presented in partnership with Violet Crown Cinema.

This screening is co-sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at The University of Texas at Austin.

Synopsis: Writer-director Sam Peckinpah was a man on the edge at all times. This film, starring Warren Oates as a piano playing drifter who sets out on the titular quest, led many to believe he had finally gone over that edge. Today its urgency and humor have made it an outlaw classic. The first screening will be hosted by former CinemaTexas member Louis Black.
