Tucson, AZ --- Cinema Tucsón, the cultural initiative featuring monthly screenings of Mexican films at the historic Fox Tucson Theatre, is proud to present a sneak preview of the powerfully inspiring drama Radical on Wednesday, October 11 at 7pm.  Presented by Cinema Tropical and the UA Center for Latin American Studies,in Partnership with the Fox Tucson Theatre and the Consulate of Mexico in Tucson


Radical stars popular Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez (Coda, Instructions Not Included) in an unforgettable performance. The film’s director, Christopher Zalla, will be in person for a Q&A with the audience after the screening.


Winner of the Festival Favorite Award at the Sundance Film Festival and based on a true story, Radical is set in a Mexican border town plagued by neglect, corruption, and violence. In that place a frustrated teacher tries a radical new method to break through his students’ apathy and unlock their curiosity, their potential … and maybe even their genius.


Directed by Christopher Zallas (Sangre de mi Sangre) and also produced by Derbez, Radical is an uplifting and heartfelt tale that shines a light on the incredible potential children can manifest when an innovative teacher empowers them to think for themselves.


“Depply affecting.” —New York Post
