There’s something special about Sundays in Buenos Aires, as the cultural capital of Latin America provides a wide variety of things to do; and on this particular Sunday—thanks to BAFICI and the free “Open Air Cinema” series—the city offers an attractive array of fine documentaries about music and football, animated short films for children, and two world-class European films. The cherry on top of this afternoon of great cinema outdoors will come as part of a Little Bafici special screening at 7.30 pm, at Plaza San Martín de Tours, in Recoleta. The films to be exhibited are shorts selected from the 2010 edition of the Expotoons Animation Festival and Gadkij utenok (The Ugly Duckling, photo), which is the Russian version of the classic tale about the ugly ducking, a wonder of the stop motion technique directed by Garri Bardin.

Starting at 3.00 pm at Pasaje Carlos Gardel (Abasto), the following films will be screened: Hit Me with Music, a fascinating journey through the street music culture of Kingston, Jamaica; Football is God” (at 5.00 pm), a curious Danish look at the Argentine passion for Boca and Diego Maradona, and A Pivellina (at 7.00 pm), the praised film directed by the Italian Tizza Covi and the Austrian Ranier Frimmel, who was critically and publicly acclaimed at the 2010 edition.
