Latino Films selected at the SXSW festival 2012 announced
The increasingly influential film section of the SXSW festival announced its lineup last night, offering its by-now characteristic mix of low-budget independent features, intrusions from the putatively hip end of Hollywood, and music-inflected documentaries.
Here Latin America Film has selected some of the Latino movies that will be scenting at Autin, Texas from the 9th until the 18th March.
Los Chidos (Germany / Mexico / USA)
Director & Screenwriter: Omar Rodriguez Lopez
The Gonzales family tries hard to hold on to their beautiful Latino traditions of misogyny and homophobia when a tall, white, industrialist stranger appears, challenging their place in the exploitative food chain.
Cast: Kim Stodel, María De Jesús Canales Ramírez, Manuel Ramos, Cecillia Gutiérrez
Amor Cronico (Cuba / USA)
Director: Jorge Perugorria
Weaving footage of singer Cucu Diamantes’ Cuban tour into a fictional love story. The result is an energetic display of her glamorous and infectious performance style and a fascinating portrait of Cuba today.

Director: Tamae Garateguy | Screenwriters: Tamae Garateguy, Diego A. Fleischer
When a film director hires two Screenwriters to make a gansters movie, a fiction feast starts: femmes fatales, mobs fighting for the same neighborhood and a limitless hero who defies every movie concept.

¡Vivan las Antipodas! (Germany / The Netherlands / Argentina / Chile))
Director: Victor Kossakovsky
Haven’t we all wondered at some point what was happening just at this moment beneath our very feet at the other side of the planet?
