Pulsos Latinos

APRIL 18-26, 2014

Pulsos Latinos
Films from the frontier of Latin American cinema

Curated by Jay Kuehner

Explore a nueva ola in Latino cinema with us this April, as we mine the open veins of a transcontinental film movement—both native and diasporic (Spanish, Portuguese, and of course English-speaking)—filled with vibrant, insurgent film voices. 

An industry boom in production and funding, combined with digital technologies and an invigorated festival circuit (including FIC Valdivia in Chile, BAFICI in Argentina, Morelia FF and FICUNAM in Mexico, to name a few) has transformed a once marginally-exposed cinema region into a contemporary center of film gravity

From lush Amazonia to the arid frontera, from cock-fighting comedy in Costa Rica to slacker drama in Ecuador, from tragedy in the Andes to growing up punk in Jalisco: there's a world waiting to be discovered. Come join us as we explore the new crystal frontier.
