This week in La Guarida will be a short week as we will be taking a tiny break for the holidays. We will be open only Tuesday to Thursday and are back on November 3rd (Election Day) with ‘As Good As It Gets.’ In the meantime, we are projecting the following films:
Tuesday 6:45 PM: ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.’ An incredible film by Taiwanese American director Ang Lee. This movie was nominated to 10 Academy Awards taking home 4 of them including Best Foreign Language Film. It also won Best Original Music Score for its sweeping soundtrack and Best Art Direction for its mind-blowing martial arts sequences.
Wednesday 6:45 PM: ‘I Am Not Your Negro.’ A documentary by Raoul Peck about the life and journey of civil-rights activist James Baldwin. A necessary reminder of why the movement ‘Black Lives Matter’ is important in our society. It doesn’t matter to which political party you subscribe, these films are eye opening into the lives and struggles of minorities and may help us find real solutions to real problems. We are in Election Year and we must consider the lives of others as we select the people that will lead us into the future. This documentary helps us to do that.
Every Tuesday, we also host an organic market in the morning and we continue with our organic breakfasts from Tuesday to Thursday from 9 AM to 1:30 PM. We also have wine specials, bagels, honey, Nunkui and Cuenca Salmon products, sourdough bread and a wonderful art exhibit by Maestro Segovia.
Also, come try our new lamb burger with tzatziki sauce, wonderful provolone cheese and crispy yucca fries. Please know that all of our ingredients are sourced by local organic producers which increases our quality and the nutritional benefits of all of our dishes apart from helping out the local economy. We are proud of this and we are even prouder of our lamb burger (we are the only place in Cuenca where you can find one).
We love all your support and we love the films that we project. We are in the Tranvia’s path which is very convenient for many of you. For most, we are just less than a 10 minute taxi ride away.
No excuses. Fill yourself with incredible films and food.
October 26th, from 9 AM to 8 PM, Free, Mariscal Lamar y Luis Pauta, Cuenca.
