The Mayor’s Office on Latino Affairs (OLA) will partner with embassies from various Latin American countries to offer engaging entertainment and fun activities for the entire family. At 1:00 p.m., the film, “Under the Same Moon,” will be shown in the theater. This film follows the parallel stories of a nine-year-old boy named Carlitos and his mother Rosario. Rosario wants nothing more than to provide the best life possible for her son. To that end, she is working illegally in the United States while her mother cares for Carlitos in Mexico.
Some unexpected circumstances arise that cause both Rosario and Carlitos to try to reunite with one another. Naturally, they both face plenty of challenges along the way, but never losing sight of the end goal–being together again. For more information contact the Office on Latino Affairs at (202) 617-2825.
