Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival


The 36th version of the Twin Cities fest has a good selection of Latin American films. Here's just one highlight:

Las Tinieblas (The Darkness), Mexico
In a fog-drenched forest trapped in eternal dusk, a father and his three children are sequestered in a log cabin, hiding from a monster lurking just outside. When the eldest son disappears, the middle child begins to question his father’s judgement and the truth of what really lies beyond. Fantasy, terror, and Oedipal conflicts combine in this hypnotizing post-apocalyptic fable that evokes both Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy-scapes and Victor Erice’s The Spirit of the Beehive.

Minneapolis/St. Paul: April 13 - 29. Full lineup and details here.
