CITR 101.9 is one of the sponsors of the Vancouver Latin American Film Festival Aug 28-Sept 7. Currently in it’s 12th year, the festival seeks to create dialogue between cultures and showcase contemporary Latin cinema to local audiences. This year’s festival features an eclectic mix of film from Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Columbia, the Dominican Republic and Argentina. Ranging from the dramatic to the comedic, powerful stories, documentaries, and glamourous galas make this festival one to attend. Some great films include Blanco, a documentary which follows 6 people living with the heretitary condition of “albinism”, leaving them with little protection from the hot sun. Workers tells the story of Lidia, a maid, and Rafael, an employee of a lightbulb factory, as they struggle with the challenges of employment and worries about the future. The popular Who is Diyani Cristal? is being shown for a second time on September 7th at 7:30pm. Based on a true story, this film, starring Gael Garcia Bernal, depicts the forensic investigation after a decomposing body is found in the desert bearing only a tatoo that says “Diyani Cristal.”  (more…)
