Chico And Rita
 
Here's a list of screenings this week, starting tomorrow Friday 4/20, in New York, Los Angeles & Chicago. These are all films we've covered at S&A. Aside from the films screening at the Tribeca Film Festival which started today, the critically-acclaimed animated feature Chico and Rita will screen in LA, as well as the 1972 Jamaican crime film The Harder They Come.
 
Also screening is Snow on tha Bluff, described as  the drama that claims to "show what life on the streets is really like." Check out our profile of that film HERE.
