A packed Walcott Warner Theatre at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination (EBCCI) celebrated Argentina’s Independence Day anniversary with Argentine Ambassador Gustavo Martinez Pandiani on Tuesday night.

Governor General Dame Sandra Mason and members of the local consular corps were among the guests viewing the classic 1985 Argentine comedy Waiting for the Hearse (Esperando la Carroza) featuring the hilarious lead character, octogenarian “Mama Cora”, and her four children.

The event, which was open to the public, was followed by a cocktail reception in the foyer with copious servings of Argentine wines. (GC)
