Latin America Presente at Chicago International Film Fest


One of North America’s oldest film events will once again take over the AMC River East theaters for its annual celebration of the best and brightest in World Cinema: a staggering 122 feature films, seven short film showcases, seven panels and three tributes to actor Forest Whitaker, filmmaker and novelist Guillermo Del Toro and producer Paula Wagner.
Some of the festival’s highlights have already made the rounds of the most important film festivals and will soon land at a multiplex or indie house near you: Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” John Wells’ “The Company Men,” Julie Taymor’s “The Tempest,” and Stephen Frears’ “Tamara Drewe,” for example.

This is the story of Perro Largo (Long Dog), an Alcapulco legend, known for his aquatic prowess, machismo and charm; as told by those who knew and loved him and were a part of a great shark hunt in November of 1975.
Hagerman came across the story via Perro Largo’s step-son John Grillo, and both he and Grillo were attempting to make a huge Hollywood production based on the legend. But a funny thing happened as they gathered first-person accounts from El Perro’s f (more…)
