The 19th Havana Film Festival, running April 6 - 17 returns to venues across NYC with a plethora of features, shorts, and documentaries celebrating Latin-American Cinema. The films chosen each year reflect strong cultural and social identities rooted in their respective countries with films from Chile, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, México, Puerto Rico, and the US.
The festival features works from directors young and old alike, such as Killing Jesus, directed by Laura Mora, in which a young woman witnesses the murder of her father and crosses paths with a young man she believes to be his killer. Joaquim, directed by Marcelo Gomes, chronicles in a partly fictional, partly historical tale, the life of Brazil's national hero Joaquim José da Silva Xavier, aliás Tiradentes. The documentary Filiberto is the story of a professional musician who abandons his trumpet and family to live the clandestine life of an armed revolutionary for Puerto Rican independence.
