2:00pm & 7:00pm: Yuli

Yuli is the life story of ballet superstar Carlos Acosta, told from three distinct vantage points. As the 11th of 11 children in his low-income family, Yuli (as his father Pedro calls him), demonstrates great physical gifts but rebels against any kind of disciplinary studies, preferring to test his survival skills on Havana’s tough streets. Pedro eventually prevails and enrolls Yuli in the Cuban National Ballet School. Despite his initial hesitation, Yuli is quickly swept up in the world of dance and as a teenager begins to forge his own legend.

4:00pm: Temblores

An unforgettable new film from the writer and director of Ixcanul, Jayro Bustamante, follows financial consultant, Pablo (Juan Pablo Olyslager), who knows that while much of the life he has lived over the past 40 years has been a lie, the price his church and family are about to extract for revealing his relationship with Francisco (Mauricio Armas Zebadua) will be steep. Immediately banished from his upper-middle-class home, Pablo takes up residence in a small, gritty apartment in downtown Guatemala City as his beautiful wife Isa (Diane Bathen) turns to their evangelical community in hopes of convincing him of repentance and the possibility of a faith-based "cure."
