FILMS ON IMMIGRATION

12PM-1PM  DOCUMENTARY:  TRAILS OF HOPE AND TERROR
The award -winning documentary explores the current immigration debate in the US by drawing on interviews with humanitarian groups, social workers, legal professionals, the undocumented, and the anti-immigration protestors.  It frames the debate within the history of US policies that have contributed to the northward migration of Central American immigrants.

1:30PM – 3PM  SHORT:  SO FAR FROM GOD
Determined to find her father in the US, rebellious Mexican teen risks her life to make a perilous solo journey hiding in a truck with 15 undocumented immigrants and a limited air supply.

SHORT:  RETORNADOS (THE RETURNED)
This short documentary focuses on three families who have been forced to return to Honduras, and the violent conditions from which they had initially fled.  Moving through the restless streets of the unstable capital city, and into the drama and determination of each family’s story, the film explores the experience of being returned to a familia, yet perilously unsafe situation.

SHORT:  OUR BARRIO
Our Barrio tells the story of Gabriela, a young woman on the verge of adulthood, who lives with her family in a diverse neighborhood.  Finding beauty in life’s quietest, yet most meaningful moments, the film is an exploration of the Latin American experience – and the human experience – as it delves into compassion, community, and overcoming adversity.

 

Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque in Collaboration with Bernalillo County, UNM Latin American and Iberian Institute and the National Hispanic Cultural Center is pleased to announce the 5th anniversary of our Albuquerque Latino Film Festival ¡Cine Magnífico!

Ever since the creation of the festival we have been promoting the Hispanic identity through cinema work by Hispanic-American creators and for a wide variety of audience interested in Latino culture with the goal of spreading and strengthen its recognizable values, empowering minorities as well as throwing some light on current socially important topics.

New creators in conjuction with experienced ones will present their work in an international ambiance on September 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th 2017.
