SPRINGFIELD–The Spring International Film Festival concludes at the Springfield Free Public Library on Thursday, May 19. The library will screen The Secret in Their Eyes (2009) at noon and 6:45 p.m.
The Secret in Their Eyes won the 2009 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar three weeks after being awarded the Goya Award for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film of 2009. According to the press release for The Secret in Their Eyes, the film “was Argentina’s most popular domestic film in three decades.”
In The Secret in Their Eyes, Benjamin Esposito (Ricardo Darin), a secretary of a court in Buenos Aires, is about to retire and decides to write a novel based on a case that deeply affected him 30 years ago. Esposito’s tale crosses Argentina’s turbulent years during the 1970s, when nothing was necessarily what it seemed to be. In Spanish with English subtitles. Rated R. 129 minutes.
Funding for the film program has been made possible in part by the NJ State Council on the Arts, Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs and by the Friends of the Springfield Free Public Library.
