Latin American Cinema: The State of the Art

Tags: ,

Latin American Cinema: The State of the Art highlights exciting new voices in film from countries such as Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Perú, and Venezuela from March 30 through April 9 in The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters. The seven-film series includes works that illuminate young adult life in Latin America, including Rara (2016) and Alba (2016). Several screenings will feature post-screening discussions with filmmakers, including both Rara and Alba, the opening night film, Magallanes (2015), and Un caballo llamado Elefante (2016).

The series showcases films created with the support of Ibermedia—the intergovernmental organization which, for two decades, has advanced the making of fiction and nonfiction films in Latin America, Portugal, Spain, and, most recently, Italy. By supporting projects in various stages of the filmmaking process, from development and production to distribution, exhibition, and promotion, Ibermedia has been instrumental in elevating artistically significant works and nurturing emerging voices in cinema. Filmmakers who have been supported by Ibermedia include Manoel de Oliveira, Lucrecia Martel, and Miguel Gomes.

Organized by La Frances Hui, Associate Curator, Department of Film.

The exhibition is supported by the Annual Film Fund.
