When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Oct. 30 2010
The 25th annual Latin American Film Festival premieres with the award-winning film Alamar by Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio. Shot in the Caribbean's Banco Chinchorro, Mexico's largest coral reef, Gonzalez-Rubio weaves the tale of a young boy's last days with his father and grandfather before moving to Rome. Saturday's film, Wasteland, shows how one of Brazil's most unconventional artists, Vik Muniz, teams up with some of the poorest, but most resourceful people in Rio de Janeiro to highlight the enduring and transformative power of art and the resilience of the human spirit. The fest continues with 13 more selections; see website for full schedule. In Spanish with English subtitles.
