This year's CineLatino showcase includes 12 films from Brazil, Mexico, Paraguay, Venezuela, Spain, Chile, Colombia, and Argentina. Here's one highlight:
Los Perros (Chile)
Our protagonist, the 42-year old Mariana, comes from a life of wealth and privilege. Her loveless marriage to a businessman has led to boredom and apathy, even as the couple attempt to have a baby. Seeking a cure for her restlessness, Mariana finds herself entertaining a fascination for her riding instructor, Juan, who may or may not be involved in a human rights investigation. Intrigued, Mariana decides to investigate, going to increasingly questionable lengths to get the full story, and ending up uncovering information not only on Juan but also her own family.
Minneapolis/St. Paul: April 12 - 28. CineLatino full lineup here.
