tanta agua dvd cover

This month’s Independent Film Movement selection is Tanta Agua.

Synopsis: What could be worse than being 14 and on vacation with your father, stuck indoors during a seemingly endless rainstorm? Alberto and his two children, Lucia and Federico, set off to a hot springs resort for a short vacation. Alberto, who doesn't see his kids much since the divorce, refuses to allow anything to ruin his plans. But the springs are closed until further notice due to heavy rains, and Lucia's adolescent rebellion clashes against her father's enthusiastic efforts for family quality time. When she meets friends her age, equally bored at the rained-out resort, Lucia's vacation starts looking up. But flings can be fleeting, and it's her father's reliable insistence they spend time together that proves to be the most meaningful part of their unexpectedly enjoyable getaway.

Directed by Ana Guevara and Leticia Jorge

Alexie Sherman book

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

by Alexie Sherman

In his first book for young adults, bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot. Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author's own experiences, coupled with poignant drawings by acclaimed artist Ellen Forney, that reflect the character's art, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.
