When a remote village in Argentina formally becomes a town, Hidalgo, a slick, ingratiating scion, is eager to be the new mayor. Baldomero, a beloved natural leader with a habitually tapping digit, opposes him with his own candidacy—and soon turns up dead. His shopkeeper brother vows revenge, keeping Baldomero’s severed !nger in a jar, an absurd icon of leadership that spurs the town to go its own way. Based on real events, this dramatic comedy celebrates democratic values.
A showcase of six critically acclaimed narrative feature films will screen at Parkland College this fall. Global Lens is an annual, touring film series launched in 2003 by the Global Film Initiative to support the distribution of cinematic works from around the world. The series provides a platform for exceptional storytelling and a window into our diverse world. The 2012 film series is co-sponsored by the Center for Global Studies at UIUC with partial funding from the Title VI Program of the U.S. Department of Education.
