BRIGHT NEW VOICES
Each year’s Cine Latino is a gathering place for vital new voices in cinema. Our Cine Latino en Casa slate will present the usual array of fascinating, entertaining and probing perspectives through the lens of emerging artists from around the globe.
CINEMA WITH A CONSCIENCE
The rich and fearless Ibero and Latin American cinematic traditions have long explored the colorful and contentious histories of their various nations, shedding light onto complex political legacies while reflecting the regions’ intoxicating mix of cultures and its pressing realities. This year’s Cine Latino en Casa is again dedicated, as it was last year, to “Cinema with a Conscience,” a wide-ranging selection of films that highlight social, political, environmental justice and activism.
WE THE PEOPLE
In this time of social and racial upheaval, these films reflect the challenges and opportunities we have as humans to bridge cultures and find a better way to move forward through the power of cinema.
THE ART OF LIVING / CENA EN CASA
A synthesis of literature, photography, athleticism, or performance, cinema has always been a product of, and profoundly connected to, the world of fine arts. This year, cuisine, as an art and as a connector, takes center stage.
