The Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles is honored to invite you to become part of our new cinematographic project “Ciclo de Cine Consular” (Consular Movie Club), where we aim to promote international cinema to yours and our local communities. This program is an opportunity to strengthen ties between our communities and to build communication bridges among diverse nations, as well as, to manifest each unique expression of art through cinema.
The Consejo Consultivo of Uruguay is delighted to present the film PURA VIDA
Synopsis A librarian who has lost her job and is suicidal decides to take a final wonderful trip to Costa Rica before swallowing a bottle of pills. Once there, she meets a younger man, a vibrant tour guide who takes her to all the beautiful places, and becomes intrigued by her aloof intellectualism.
He works hard to draw her out, to get her to embrace the Costa Rican motto, "Pura Vida," which means "pure life," but in a broader sense encompasses the national exuberance for living. She inspires him to read the first book he has ever read, and he encourages her to have some fun, relax, and loosen up for the first time in too many years.
