The Vermont International Film Festival’s (VTIFF) Global Roots series continues Sunday, Aug. 11 with the Mexican film “The Fantastic World of Juan Orol.” In a black-and-white flashback mingling movie-tainted memories of his Galician childhood, forced exile to Cuba, and arrival in Mexico, intrepid Juanito pursues failed careers as baseball player, boxer, bullfighter, and gangster before landing in the movies, where failure kind of works for him. Screening is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted to support the 2013 VTIFF taking place October 11-20 in downtown Burlington. Film begins at 5 pm at North End Studios, 294 N. Winooski Avenue, Burlington. For more information, visit www.vtiff.org.
