Explore a nueva ola in Latino cinema with us this April, as we mine the open veins of a transcontinental film movement—both native and diasporic (Spanish, Portuguese, and of course English-speaking)—filled with vibrant, insurgent film voices.
An industry boom in production and funding, combined with digital technologies and an invigorated festival circuit (including FIC Valdivia in Chile, BAFICI in Argentina, Morelia FF and FICUNAM in Mexico, to name a few) has transformed a once marginally-exposed cinema region into a contemporary center of film gravity.
