AFI has selected “The Mexican Suitcase” (La Maleta Mexicana) as its opening night feature for the 2011 AFI Latin American Film Festival in Silver Spring, MD.
“The Mexican Suitcase” is the latest from documentary filmmaker Trisha Ziff, whose 2008 film, “Chevolution,” explored the iconography behind the well-known photo of guerilla revolutionary Che Guevara.
“Suitcase” follows the discovery and preservation of thousands of photo negatives, thought to be lost, but found in Mexico City in 2007.
Ziff will be in attendance to present the film, which was an official selection of the Los Angeles Latino Film Festival in July.
The three-week AFI Latin American Film Festival runs from September 22-October 12.
