Ireland XII Film Festival. Latin America Week 2011 (Programme)
The 12th Irish Latin American Film Festival, once again aligned with Latin America Week 2011 takes place in Dublin on the 5/6/7/8th April with selected screenings at other locations [see details at www.lasc.ie]. Admission to all screenings is free at this small screening space, and attendees are requested to be seated on time for each screening.
This bi-lingual Film Festival is organised in our indigenous language, Irish with English as back-up, and as in all previous Festivals, features short films and documentaries. In 2011, three indigenous languages of The Americas – Guaraní (Karoi Norte), Quechua (Ukuku) and Mapuche (La Voz Mapuche) feature. Films are infrequently available on Central America, but this year’s Festival programmes an excellent documentary on Honduras and the detrimental influence of its imperial neighbour, the US.
Sincere gratitude is extended to all the filmmakers and producers from Latin America, and the European filmmakers for their goodwill and efficient co-operation in drawing up the programme for this year’s Festival.
