Film Screening: “Los Delincuentes/The Delinquents”

This event has passed.

Cinematheque, 4070 Vilas Hall
@ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Tired of their dead-end jobs, a pair of workaday bank employees embark on a robbery that will take years to pay off. But after they split up to await their jackpot, their lives continue to intersect in strange ways. Captivating even as it thoroughly subverts the typical heist movie tropes, this beguiling shaggy-dog caper grows deeper the further it digresses from its central crime. One of the most unanimously acclaimed films at this year’s Cannes, The Delinquents is a philosophical look at the price of freedom. Presented with the support of Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies at UW Madison (UW LACIS). (MK)
