CINEMA ECUADOR Film Series: Ratas, Ratones, y Rateros
Join us for the premiere film in our Cinema Ecuador Film Series, Ratas, Ratones, y Rateros! Originally released in 1999, Ratas, Ratones, y Rateros arrived in theaters at the dawn of political and economic upheaval in Ecuador, and broke ground for the burgeoning of contemporary Ecuadorian cinema. The film tells the story of a young thief from Quito whose life is upended after the arrival of his cousin, an ex-convict with a bounty on his head. Considered the first prestigious work of cinema to be produced in Ecuador, its impact reverberates across a generation.
