LACONIA — The Laconia Human Relations Committee in cooperation with the Laconia Public Library will be showing the film 'Under the Same Moon' on Monday, May 4 at 6:30 p.m.
Rosario, a mother, flees to the United States from Mexico, leaving her nine year old son Carlitos. Rosario and Carlitos have not seen each other in four years. Rosario, now living in LA, calls her son every Sunday from a payphone. She can reassure him that she almost has enough money saved to bring him to LA to be with her. Her life is one of instability, but with determination to be reunited with her son. Carlitos' father has long disappeared.
Carlitos lives in a small Mexican village with his sick grandmother and an oppressive aunt and uncle. They would like custody of Carlitos in order to take the money that Rosario sends to him. One day, while working for a woman named Carmen, Carlitos encounters two American immigrant transporters who smuggle small children across the border.
When his grandmother passes away, Carlitos decides to cross the border to find his mother. He refuses to live with his aunt and uncle. The American transporters start his journey. Though he successfully crosses the border, his problems just begin. Carlitos is a boy of strength and courage who refuses to stop seeking his mother. He experiences all the fear and uncertainty of a life underground, while also finding those who give help and support. His radiance and courage give hope to others along the way. This 2008 film was well received in the foreign film community.
