Abandoned by his girlfriend, Diego goes with his cousins to the seaside town where they spent their summers as children.

Part free-wheeling merry-go-round ride and part stroll down memory lane, this comedy is also a tribute to cinema in the references to great films and directors made by the owner of the town’s video rental store. Spain, 2011; fiction; 97 minutes; Spanish with English subtitles.Bank of America Theater at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.Thursday, November 21st at 7 PMFree ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center continues to show off some excellent examples of Contemporary Spanish Cinema with a screening of Primos (Cousinhood). This 2001 comedy out of Spain follows Diego (Quim Gutiérrez), who has been abandoned at the altar by his girlfriend, and ventures with his two cousins on a nostalgic trip back to the village where they used to vacation as children. The screening will be in Spanish with English subtitles. Admission is free, but seating is limited, so you need to pick up tickets at the NHCC’s Bank of America Theater box office, starting one hour before showtime. The film will start screening at 7pm on Thursday, Nov. 21. The National Hispanic Cultural Center is located at 1701 Fourth Street SW.
