Kilburn Film Festival con sabor Latino Americano
For this fiesta year we’re showing rare and exciting films, many of them Latin American, because, with our local Latin American community, we’re celebrating the 200th anniversary of the independence of five Latin American countries.
You’ll see a documentary about the oppression of the descendants of the Mayans, strikingly original Mexican and Spanish video art, Mexican films about greed, machismo, homophobia, whores and corruption…and a superb documentary about Celia Cruz, the Queen of Salsa, who erupted on to the Cuban music scene and broke down the barriers of racism and sexism.
The rest of the Kilburn community matches this brilliance with an Irish film about the devil (for women only); Kilburn Older Voices Make a Stand about a seat; Kilburn’s under 25s show their own films and join in professional workshops; Kingsgate Workshops Trust presents a programme with the theme of beauty, featuring a rare screening of a Frida Kahlo documentary accompanied by short films by Kingsgate artists and at the Tricycle on Sunday 11 the Movie Makers’ Matinee will screen award-winning shorts by local filmmakers followed by alternative films from Brain Wash.
Come along for four days of fiesta films at the Tricycle Cinema, the Kingsgate Community Centre and other locations around Kilburn Grange Park where on Sunday 11th July the Kilburn Festival is hosting top Latin American bands and dancers. Join the Fiesta!
