Select Screening: Language Lessons

9.23.2021 - Maryland Hall, Bowen Theater, 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, MD 21401

The Annapolis Film Festival presents a special screening of  “Language Lessons” on September 23rd.  When Adam's (Mark Duplass) husband surprises him with weekly Spanish lessons, he's unsure about where or how this new element will fit into his already structured life. But when tragedy strikes, his Spanish teacher, Cariño (Natalie Morales), becomes a lifeline he didn’t know he needed.Adam develops an unexpected and complicated emotional bond with Cariño—but do you really know someone just because you’ve experienced a traumatic moment with them? Bittersweet, honest, and at times darkly funny, LANGUAGE LESSONS is a disarmingly moving exploration of platonic love.

The Annapolis Film Society is proud to present year round screening opportunities of independent first run features in partnership with Maryland Hall and in association with The Goldstein-Cunitz Center for Film and New Media.

Amidst the ongoing effects of COVID-19, we continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our patrons, artists, volunteers, staff, and the community.
