Sept. 26 screening features Q&A with screenwriter Andrés Duprat, plus post-screening reception sponsored by the Embassy of Argentina

[EL CIUDADANO ILUSTRE]
2016 Oscar® Selection, Argentina
In this hilarious comedy of manners from directing duo Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat (THE MAN NEXT DOOR), Daniel (Oscar Martínez, PAULINA, WILD TALES) is a Nobel-winning author who returns to Argentina after three decades in Spain. Suffering from writer's block and busy refusing prestigious awards and engagements, he is moved by an invitation to visit his hometown of Salas — the inspiration for all of his books — to accept the designation of "distinguished citizen." The townsfolk proudly roll out the red carpet to welcome their hometown hero, but conflicts quickly emerge as Daniel's worldly views prove far too much to handle.
