At this time of year the outdoor area of Peru’s *Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC)* is typically taken over by toddlers and young children who partake in daytime art classes. Come nighttime however, and it’ll be transformed into the setting for a relaxed night out for the adults.
Located in the district of *Barranco*, MAC has come to terms with the summer heat and wants you to do the same. From January until March, the museum will host outdoor screenings of films upon the *last two Wednesdays of each month*. Titled El Septimo Arbol, the seasonal event has *no admission charge, and presentations begin at 7:30 p.m.*
Together with BBVA, MAC has organized this cultural event as a way to celebrate contemporary Peruvian film. Last week marked the first Wednesday screening of the year, with Huaca Sonora, a filmed concert from Peruvian musician Manongo Mujica. The schedule for these coming weeks is as follows:
*Jan. 25*: El Elefante Desaparecido (2014) _Thriller directed by Javier Fuentes-León_
*Feb. 15*: Saicomania (2011) _Documentary of Peruvian Punk band, Los Saicos. Directed by Héctor Chávez_
*Feb. 22*: El Limpiador (2012) _Thriller/drama directed by Adrián Saba_
*March 22*: El Evangelio de la Carne (2013) _Drama directed by Eduardo Mendoza_
*March: 29*: Las Malas Intenciones (2011) _Drama/comedy directed by Rosario García-Montero_
