Maria Felix Retrospective At MCI

Maria FelixIn celebration of the l00th anniversary of the birth of Mexican actress and diva María Félix, a muse for poets, musicians and painters, our three organizations will present two of her short films, a panel discussion and reception, as well as six of her films.
