Colombian Film Festival New York


The Colombian Film Festival returns to New York, presenting new Colombian film at Tribeca Cinemas in March.  Colombian fiction, documentary, and short films will be presented. Highlights include:

Gente de bien
Eric, 10, finds himself almost overnight living with Gabriel, his father, who he barely knows. The man has trouble keeping their heads above water and building a relationship with his son. Maria Isabel, the woman Gabriel works for as a carpenter, decides to take the child under her wing.

Monte Adentro
In the western Colombian district of Caldas, mules are still an important - if fast-diminishing - form of transport. This nearly wordless documentary follows a family of muleteers as they split their time between the city and the country.

New York: March 24 - 29. See their website for a full lineup and details.
