The second annual Festival de Cine is a Hispanic film festival hosted by Salve Regina, featuring five entertaining and thoughtful films from a variety of Spanish-speaking countries.

"The Tenth Man" is a quiet and well-observed comedy that wrestles with notions of identity, home and the intricacies of the father-son relationship. After years away, Ariel returns to Buenos Aires seeking to reconnect with his father Usher, who has founded a charity foundation in Once, the city's bustling Jewish district where Ariel spent his youth. In the process of trying to meet his father and getting entangled in his charitable commitments, Ariel also reconnects with his own Jewish roots. Usher staves off a meeting with his son, roping him into a number of small assignments, during the course of which Ariel meets Eva, who volunteers for Usher's charity. Eva's radiant inner strength and independent spirit inspires Ariel to come to grips with the traditions that once divided him and his father and to rethink his own identity.

A closing reception will precede the screening at 5 p.m. Tickets for individual screenings are $10 and festival passes to all films and events are $40. Tickets and festival passes are available online or at the door.
