In conjunction with the annual Festival de Latino and inspired by the annual San Diego Latino Film Festival, the inaugural Latino Film Fest features screenings of our Latino-produced films over three days at the historic Kentucky Theatre. Films include
“Rudo & Cursi,” a comedy about two Mexican boys who find fame as soccer stars.
“Who is Dayani Cristal?” a docu-drama about a young Central American immigrant who disappears in the Arizona desert.
“Sombras de Azul,” a romance about a young Mexican woman who traverses Havana, Cuba in the wake of her brother’s suicide.
-and the centerpiece film “Avenues,” a drama about an east L.A. man trying to reintegrate into his gang-centered neighborhood after a stint in prison (with a Q&A with director Dominic Martina as well as Mezcal and Mexican beer tastings).
