Also on the bill is Maria Candelaria, the story of a young woman who falls ill. When her lover steals medicine from a shop to save her, a string of tragedies befalls them. The 1943 drama stars Dolores del Río and Pedro Armendáriz. Maria, the first Mexican film ever to be screened at Cannes, took home the festival’s Grand Prix award. There’s also the allegorical Macario. Based on a Brothers Grimm tale, the film follows a farmer and his dealings with God, the Devil and Death. Rounding out the lineup is Yo bailé con Don Porfirio, a musical comedy about a man whose life gets complicated when his two daughters, one legitimate and one illegitimate, are mistaken for one another. Noon to 9 p.m. Talento Bilingüe de Houston, 333 South Jensen.
