Chico and Rita at Ballina Film Club

Chico and Rita is the next screening at Ballina Film Club on Tuesday night November 1. Set in Cuba in 1948, Chico is a young piano player with big dreams.

Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) and Catalan designer Javier Mariscal create a passionate, animated Cuban love story. Admission is €5.
