Amador- Tuesday, May 1, 7 p.m.- Alpine Playhouse

The film from Spain is a dark comedy, that Jonathan Holland of Variety says is a “well crafted and thoughtful (film). Successfully (…) blending black comedy, lyricism and social critique.” 
Amador is about Marcela, a young immigrant with financial troubles, who finds a summer job looking after Amador, a bed-ridden elderly man whose family is away. She thinks her problems are solved, but Amador dies shortly thereafter, putting Marcela in a predicament. His death leaves her jobless, something she can’t afford to let happen… Faced with a difficult moral dilemma, Marcela will prove that death can’t always stop life. Amador is 112 minutes long and is in Spanish with English subtitles. Adult content
