“Latin American cinema has reinvented itself once again” said Carlos Gutierrez, co-founding director of Cinema Tropical. Throughout the last ten years, Latin American filmmakers have established themselves as ambitious and clearly discernable voices in the cinematographic landscape.
This was the reason, according to Gutierrez, for bringing to life the first ever Cinema Tropical AWARDS that will be presented today at the TimesCenter in New York City. The presentation will honor ten distinguished film productions from the region.
Gutiérrez believes this is truly an exciting moment for Latin American cinema. An extensive list of young filmmakers has emerged from and gained international acclaim for their diverse, artistic, and innovative work. New York based Cinema Tropical—an established purveyor of Latin American cinema—hopes this cutting edge event will have international impact and will help draw even more attention to the creative output from Latin America.
This October, Cinema Tropical has organized a series of events celebrating Latin American cinema that kicked off last week with an insightful panel discussion with Chilean director Sebastián Silva (The Maid). It also includes the publication of a book of essays about the nominated films, a product of a special partnership between Cinema Tropical and Jorge Pinto Books.
The highlight of the ten-day program will be tonight’s AWARDS ceremony, with Triple nominated Lucrecia Martel from Argentina and Mexican director Carlos Reygadas to attend. (more…)
