Alejandro A. Riera, of the Chicago Latino Film Festival, on giving Latin American cinema the respect it deserves

As we celebrate our third year with GFI, Global Lens Series Manager Jeremy Quist asked me to reflect on the state of Latin American film distribution in the United States. And the more I thought about the subject, I found myself asking: When will Latin American cinema get the respect it deserves?
Yes, our cinema has an illustrious history that dates back to the silent era and includes such high points as the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema; the rise of Brazil’s Cinema Novo movement in the 50s and 60s; the emergence of post-Revolutionary Cuban cinema in the 60s and 70s; and, more recently, what some critics describe as the “New Argentinean Cinema.” And yet, even when countries such as Ecuador, Bolivia and Venezuela — not exactly film production powerhouses — are coming out with powerfully moving visual (more…)

How NYC Became a Capital of Latin American Film in a Decade

It’s hard to name a specific year as the launching-point of the renaissance that Latin American cinema has experienced over the past decade. What is hardly debatable, however, is the significant increase in exposure and presence that the cinema from that region has accomplished in such a time-span. The last ten years have proved to be tremendously influential for Latin American films and the people who make them, providing opportunities that were unimaginable a generation before. Previously hindered by an imposing multitude of production difficulties, the films that were able to get made would face the near impossible task of finding screens at home and abroad. This is hardly the case today, and New (more…)

The Museum of Modern Art is honoring the work of the New York-based non-profit media arts organization Cinema Tropical with a program of acclaimed Latin American films promoted by Cinema Tropical in the past decade. This film series celebrates not only the work of the organization, but also an extraordinary decade of Latin American film. The past ten years have witnessed an unexpected and astonishing film renaissance throughout Latin America. Largely influenced and inspired by the experience of the so-called New Argentine Cinema and propelled by creative hybrid models of production, a young and enthusiast generation of filmmakers are drastically changing how the region is seen and represented on the big screen.

Film of the week: Interview with Carlos Moreno Talks All Your Dead Ones

One of our favorite foreign films at Sundance was All Your Dead Ones, directed by Colombia’s Carlos Moreno. It’s a slightly absurdist fable in which a poor farmer finds a pile of dead bodies dumped in his field on election day. The story is slow-moving but powerful, the acting is wonderful (especially by lead Alvaro Rodriguez and by Jorge Herrema as the mayor), and the cinematography is marvelous (the film won a Special Jury award for cinematography). Moreno sat (more…)

Courtesy of the Wexner Center Lorena Velazquez consorts with an extraterrestrial extra in the 1960 mexican sci-fi film, ‘The Ship of Monsters.’

The Wexner Center for the Arts is hosting Cinema Latino this month. The annual series spotlights Latin American filmmaking by showing some of the most popular films of the year as well as some classics.
All films are shown in Spanish with English subtitles. Countries with films being presented include Mexico, Argentina and Colombia.
Chris Stults, the associate curator of film and video at the Wexner Center, said selecting the films to show can be difficult because there are so many films to choose from.
“We try hard to present a nice variety of films in terms of theme and country represented,” he said.
The Center for Latin American Studies and the Department of Spanish (more…)
