Latinbeat


  • Walter Reade Theater 165 W 65th St New York, NY, 10023 United States

This year’s showcase of recent Latin American cinema combines personal, risk-taking works by mostly emerging filmmakers with more traditional, award-winning productions. This juxtaposition and the breadth of countries represented speak to the growth of a film industry that began in only a few countries about 15 years ago and has now spread throughout the entire region.

From films about a Mexican garage band (We Are Mari Pepa) to heavy metal in the Andes (Holiday) and from first-time directors as well as established ones, this year’s Latinbeat is centered on young protagonists.
