Film Streams and the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) are proud to present Cinemateca 2016, the fifth biennial celebration of Latino, Latin-American, and Spanish cinema. Dedicated as always to presenting great art that transcends borders, this year’s program delivers narrative films from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Spain, and (for the first time) Guatemala.
The month-long program will include special screenings with free pre-show cuisine and post-show discussions each Tuesday. It also features two family-friendly selections that cross-over with Film Streams’ Forever Young Family & Children’s Series.
Tuesday night offerings include a camp comedy (MY BIG NIGHT, Spain), a true-crime thriller (EL CLAN, Argentina), coming-of-age dramas (VIVA, Cuba/Ireland; IXCANUL, Guatemala), and a restored 1984 documentary on the Latin roots of one of New York’s most famously gentrified neighborhoods (LOS SURES). The Forever Young family-friendly picks (BOY AND THE WORLD, Brazil; free screenings of HABANASTATION, Cuba) will show on Saturdays, Sundays, and Thursdays throughout the series.
All Tuesday screenings will begin at 7 pm, followed by post-show charlas (“discussions”) led by OLLAS faculty and special guests. Prior to show time, attendees will have the opportunity to sample food from local restaurants with connections to the films’ respective countries of origin.
All films in the series will be presented at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater, located at 1340 Mike Fahey Street. Tickets are $9 general, $7 for seniors, students, teachers, military and those arriving by bicycle, and $4.50 for Film Streams Members.
