'Morazán,' LGBT Drama 'Evening Shadows' At Cinestudio

Many places in the world have a lot of catching up to do in the matter of gay rights. A movie showing in a one-time-only screening at Cinestudio in Hartford is set in one of these places.

“Evening Shadows” tells the story of Kartik, who comes out of the closet to his mother, who lives in a small town in southern India. Raised in a conservative society, she doesn’t know a lot about homosexuality or where to turn to for advice.

The movie, in Hindi with subtitles, is part of Cinestudio’s Second Thursday series of LGBT-themed film screenings. It will be shown Thursday, Sept. 13, at 7:30 p.m. at the theater at 300 Summit St. at Trinity College in Hartford.

Also showing at Cinestudio this week in a one-time-only screening is “Morazán.” The Honduran historical drama tells the story of Costa Rica’s fight for the restoration of the nation. It will be shown Saturday, Sept. 15, at 2:30 p.m., as part of the college’s celebration of Central American Independence Day. The director of “Morazán,” Hispano Duron, will do a Q&A after the screening.

Admission to “Evening Shadows” is $10, $8 seniors and students, $7 Friends of Cinestudio. Admission to “Morazán” is free. www.cinestudio.org.
