Vancouver Latin American Film Festival comes to Douglas College Sept. 8
The annual event promotes Latin American cinema in Vancouver and encourages dialogue among cultures, while exploring and celebrating the art of contemporary Latin American and Latin-Canadian film making.
This year’s screening at the College will feature Camino a La Paz (Road to La Paz) from Argentina. The film follows the story of an unemployed man who starts a private car service and takes an older Arab man, Jalil, on a long-distance journey from Buenos Aires to La Paz that will change their lives. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles. The concept of the film – by Brazilin director Glauber Rocha – is based on the film Entranced Earth 1967.
The film will screen at 4:30pm at the New Westminster Campus in Lecture Theatre N2201. Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
