Argentina’s Award-Winning Comedy ‘Bombon El Perro’ to Screen For One Week at Mann Theatres Hazard Center

Carlos Sorin, director of Historias Minimas\Intimate Stories (screened in San Diego, June 2005) brings us his bittersweet story of Juan Villegas an unemployed gas station attendant who finds himself down on his luck until along comes Bombón, an enormous pedigree Argentine Dogo. The two new pals hit the dog show circuit in pursuit of fame, love and excitement. Sorin’s use of ‘non-actors’ blurs the line between fact and fiction. The actors convincingly play themselves in the movie adding an endearing real human touch and genuine sincerity to the film. Winner at the San Sebastian International Film festival and the Argent-inean Film Critics Association Awards.

* “Once again Carlos Sorin has made a film that speaks to us without tricks - of our solitude, our sadness and our joys” - Adolfo C. Martinez, La Nación

* Winner! San Sebastian International Film Festival

* An Argentine take on the hit mockumentary “Best in Show”!

BOMBÓN EL PERRO will be screened for ONE WEEK ONLY exclusively at MANN THEATRES HAZARD CENTER conveniently located off the 163 freeway at Friars Road (7510 Hazard Center Dr.) from August 12th (Fri) through August 18th (Thur).
