For a look at life from the other side of the border – and the hemisphere – check out the 32nd annual Latin American Film Series, which starts its eight-day run Friday at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Union Theatre, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd.

This year’s series explores the region from a variety of perspectives, with works from Brazil, Uruguay, Haiti, Mexico, Argentina and the United States. Movies include “Gigante,” a Uruguayan film about a security guard who becomes obsessed with a late-night cleaning woman (5 p.m. Saturday); “Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti,” a documentary by experimental-film legend May Deren thought lost but restored years after her death (7 p.m. Sunday); and “Walt Y El Grupo,” a documentary about Walt Disney’s 1941 filmmaking trip through Latin America (7 p.m. April 21).

Admission to all films is free. See a schedule at www4.uwm.edu
