Asked to go to Cristiano’s house to pick up clothes and documents, Andre stumbles on a notebook, and it’s here that Araby begins — or, rather, transforms. As Andre reads from the journal entries, we are plunged into Cristiano’s life, into stories of his wanderings, adventures, and loves.

Cuban Food Stories

Cuban Food Stories

Diverse cuisine is rarely counted among the cultural phenomena for which Cuba is celebrated; popular notions of Cuba as a placed defined by deprivation doesn’t help. A richly comprehensive remedy for this misperception, Cuban Food Stories visits every province in the country to sample a culinary legacy grounded in so much more than rice and beans.

Paragons of Cuba’s characteristic adaptability and creativity, the film’s subjects—which include an artist turned restauranteur and nuclear physicist turned fisherman—create mouth-watering meals with ingredients such as coconut milk, cacao, lobster and river shrimp. Until now devoid of franchises and the fraught agricultural practices that often come with a place at the global economic table, Cuba is undergoing a period of sweeping change, making the preservation of its culinary heritage a priority—and making Cuban Food Stories a must-see.

Resurrección

The final film by the late Mexican director Eugenio Polgovsky—one of the finest documentary filmmakers of his generation—is a poignant portrait of a family’s fight for survival and the regeneration of their local river. Once known as the Mexican Niagara, the waterfall of El Salto de Juanacatlán was a source of immense joy and continuous sustenance for the villages surrounding it. This natural paradise disappeared when an industrial complex was established across the Santiago River close to Guadalajara. Nowadays its poisonous waters destroy everything in their path, including the memories of the fishermen and farmers who watched their whole world disappear. From among the toxic ruins of the river’s banks, ancient specters emerge as an echo of a lost Eden. The destiny of a river goes hand in hand with that of a village, and humanity itself.

In William, the New Judo Master, directors Ricardo Silva and Omar Guzmán show how a Mexican nurse washes his naked old body. ‘How did we get here?’ a voiceover muses. ‘What road led us here?

Memories of Disintegration: Ibero-American Experimental Film

As the profile of Spanish language cinema continues to rise on the festival circuit, a strong commitment to experimentation remains in the cinema emanating from the region. First-rate film schools in Cuba, Argentina, and Mexico, among other nations, are producing a new generation of filmmakers who eschew the proliferation of digital techniques, returning to tactical analog modes of production (This program features work made on Video8, Super 8, 16mm, Super 35mm, and VHS). Playing with notions of self-reflexivity and nostalgia, real and imagined, these filmmakers test the boundaries of both narrative and documentary genres. Showcasing the diverse voices of these talented young artists, each of the six films highlight the vision and ingenuity of Latin America along with Spain. These shorts have screened at Cannes, Toronto International Film Festival, and New York Film Festival, along with strong Latin American showcases such as the Morelia, Mar del Plata, Valdivia, and Havana film festivals.

Human Rights Watch Festival

Every year, the Human Rights Watch brings films showcasing the struggles of people around the world to protect their rights. This year, we are highlighting three Latin American films from their lineup:

The Unafraid, USA
High School seniors Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo, like most of their friends, are eager to go to college and pursue their education. However, their home state of Georgia not only bans them from attending the top five public universities, but also deems them ineligible for in-state tuition at public colleges due to their immigration status as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. In response, these three ambitious and dream-filled students divert their passions towards the fight for education in the undocumented community.

Voices of the Sea, Cuba/USA
In this tiny, remote Cuban fishing village, Mariela, a mother of four young children, longs for a better life. The families in her village are utterly dependent on the day’s catch, which changes with the tide. The shops are empty, school is repeatedly shut down due to a lack of resources, and basic transportation is non-existent. With the relationship between the US and Cuba in flux, Mariela, like many Cubans, is afraid that her only chance to escape to the US will soon close. Her husband, Pita, loves his community, cherishes his friendships, and is loyal to his craft as a fisherman. The tension between husband and wife — one desperate to leave, the other content to stay — builds further after her brother and neighbors flee the country, risking their lives to chase the American Dream.

Women of the Venezuelan Chaos, Venezuela
Embodying strength and stoicism, five Venezuelan women from diverse backgrounds each draw a portrait of their country as it suffers under the worst crisis in its history amid extreme food and medicine shortages, a broken justice system, and widespread fear. The women share what life is really like for them and their families as the truth of the country’s difficulties are repeatedly denied by the government.

The first farm worker woman in America to be hired as a union organizer, Maria's story was silenced and her legacy buried-until now.

Cozarinsky returns to MoMA with a Carte Blanche selection that juxtaposes classic and contemporary Argentine cinema in fresh and provocative ways. For example, a 1930s musical drama paired with a subversive theater improvisation from the late 1960s, or a 1950s noir about a child murderer paired with a recent coming-of-age drama about a different form of child abuse.  Cozarinsky will introduce many of the programs, together with the scholar and archivist Fernando Martín Peña.

Panke

In this Argentinian film, the main character has nothing but the memories of his mother in Burkina Faso and his recently deceased brother. His brother, however, despite his death, demands attention. The body needs to be recognized before the authorities of an unknown city, the necessary papers need to be taken care of, as do the arrangements to return the body to Burkina Faso: a whole prosaic annex of death with rules that become urgent amidst the mourning. Focusing almost entirely on one character, this singular film reflects on the experience of displacement, as the protagonist sets out on a trip by foot towards an unlikely resolution of his tribulations.

Memorias del Subdesarrollo (Memories of Underdevelopment)

A 1968 film, in a 4K restoration for its 50th anniversary. Post-Bay of Pigs Havana, as bourgeois, would-be writer Sergio Corrieri sees off his parents (they embrace) and wife (they don’t).  Later, his seeming best friend emigrates, too, only after a long harangue. He attempts to write, observes the city through a telescope from his très 60s apartment balcony, and wanders through the streets, book stores, and art galleries, always aware of glances from women, fantasizing about his cleaning lady - then seducing Daisy Granados’ nervous/passionate working class teen. He watches a reel of sexy scenes cut from Hollywood movies by Batista-era censors and attends a literary round table with the likes of Edmundo Desnoes (author of the original novel) and Jack Gelber (author of The Connection).  He sweats his way through an embarrassing trial, and listens to a vintage Castro rant during the Missile Crisis. All filtered through brooding voice-overs, newsreels, and hidden camera treks through the city; a character study of a post-revolution désengagée through the techniques of the New Wave and Antonioni.

Remarkably, the team began to rebuild just one month later, and with exclusive access to the new team, families of the deceased, and three living players, this powerful documentary shows a team and a city divided about how to handle catastrophe: should they focus on keeping the memory of the dead alive or move on with their own lives?

The country life is a challenge for Frida – time passes differently in her new home and the nature that surrounds her is mysterious and estranging. She now has a little sister for whom she has to take care of and has to deal with new feelings, such as jealousy. Often, Frida is naively convinced that running away would be the best solution to her problems. Yet, the family does what it can to achieve a fragile new balance and bring normality to their life. Occasional family outings to a local fiesta or a swimming pool, cooking or listening to jazz in the garden bring them moments of happiness. Slowly, Frida realizes that she is there to stay and has to adapt to the new environment.
