Dir. Jonatan Relayze, Peru. 2017. 75 Minutes. Spanish with English subtitles

Critically acclaimed Rosa Chumbe is a rare film from Peru where the multiculturalism and multiracialism of Peruvien society is present everywhere.
Rosa is a mature police officer with both a gambling and a drinking problem. She lives with her daughter Sheila, who has a little baby. One day, after a big fight between them, Sheila steals her mother's savings and storms out of the house leaving her baby behind. Rosa is forced to spend some time with her grandson. Something changes inside her heart of stone. However, everything takes a wrong turn one night. Only a miracle can save her.

Shown with short film "Thus Spoke the Sea (Ainsi parla la Mer)" (Haiti).

Free and open to the public.
