Entre Nos

Miami Beach Cinematheque. May 21st, 22nd and 23rd, 2010. 7:00 p.m

altThe Miami Beach Cinematheque will present the digital presentation of Entre Nos. Based on a true story, the film tells the misfortunes of an illegal immigrant mother and her two children, after being abandoned by her husband on the streets of New York City.

Mariana is determined to keep her family together. Her children, Gabriel and Andrea have grown up in Colombia without their father. Finally after many years of separation the family is reunited in New York City, but coming home late from work one night Antonio announces he has found work in Miami and will be moving there… alone. 

He will send for the family when he is settled. But the rent is due, there is no food on the table and Mariana has fifty dollars to her name. With no one to turn to, she must find a way, in a strange city where she barely speaks the language, to provide for her family, financially and emotionally. Mariana, Gabriel and Andrea take us on a remarkable journey where we bear witness to a family’s commitment to survival and their unrelenting hope for the American dream…one soda can at a time.
