Latin American Cinema: The State of the Art


Recent films from Latin American countries, including Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Perú, and Venezuela, all supported by Ibermedia. Here's one highlight:

Dauna. Lo que lleva el río (Gone with the River), Venezuela, 2015
Independent-minded Dauna craves knowledge and wants to explore the world beyond northeastern Venezuela's Orinoco Delta, which her indigenous Warao tribe has called home for generations. Married to her childhood sweetheart and expected by her community to adhere to a traditional life, Dauna struggles to fit into two worlds—and pays a price for her quest to be a free spirit. In a tale spanning three decades, Cuban-Venezuelan director Mario Crespo and a cast of nonprofessional actors capture the timeless beauty of Warao life.
