Reeling: The 33rd Chicago LGBTQ+ International Film Festival has several Latin American films in its lineup, including Dolares de Arena, Muerte en Buenos Aires, and these two:
Liz en Septiembre (Liz in September), Venezuela
A tight-knit group of lesbian friends are enjoying their annual vacation on a beautiful Caribbean beach in Venzuela when Eva, a straight stranger, crashes the party. On a dare, the group's heartbreaker Liz launches a seduction, with results that surprise them both.
En la gama de los grisas (In the Grayscale), Chile
This sensitive romantic drama puts a delicate and mature twist on the classic coming-out story. Filmed in Santiago, Chile, it follows an emotionally ill-at-ease, married architect's journey of sexual discovery, which switches into high gear after he meets an intriguing gay man.
