Bolivia, Music/Human Rights Documentary, 201221 min, HDV, Color/Black & WhiteSpanish with English subtitles

Diego Vega

Peru/USA, Crime/Drama, 201311 min, HDV, ColorSpanish, English with English subtitles

 

ALMOST CRIMES is the story of two young men and the decisions they are driven to make when they try to rob a South Texas cash loans office targeted towards Latino immigrants. Sam, an outsider, has nothing to lose but the haunting desire to escape his small town solitude. Jack is the town's prodigal son and Sam's closest friend, so when Sam asks him for his help with the heist, he can't refuse. Jack has other reasons for wanting to escape but he has a lot more to lose than Sam does. Ultimately both will have to face their feelings for each other as they realize that sometimes desire stands in the way of loyalty, and that there are still many miles left between the town and the city. Because, as they know, we can only play the cards we are dealt and, when push comes to shove, we take our love wherever we can find it.

  Gift of Gab Diego Rico

USA, Comedy, 201324 min, HDV, ColorSpanish, English with English subtitles

 

GIFT OF GAB takes place in El Paso, Texas, a place which, although a 21st-century city, still remains an old and undiscovered frontier to many of its citizens, especially Pedro Bustamante. Pedro, unfamiliar with Spanish, taps his Friend, El Amigo, for help in trying to conquer the language so that he may have a chance to conquer his love, Elisa, a Mexican college peer. This bi-cultural love story takes 3 college friends working at the university library on a small adventure that connects them with a much richer past. It is a story that has been told and seen throughout the West, a journey that follows Pedro Bustamante as he navigates the land as a modern day cowboy. Just in the past month, the short film has recently begun to appear on the festival circuit, with successful screenings at the Chicago Latino Film Festival and at WorldFest in Houston, where it received a Remi Award.

The places we notice in passing are sites where social hierarchies manifest themselves and interact. In the realm of the visible, only some people are able to remain unseen, to choose whom to see and when. Aesthetics are not how the world is presented to us but rather how it is pre-established for us--what Jacques Ranciere calls “the distribution of the sensible.” What would emerge if we explored an ordinary stretch of sidewalk in the East Side of Austin, Texas, for a period of several months? How and by whom would we be challenged aesthetically and politically? LA CUESTA evokes a place on the side of the road and the lives that sustain it. This interactive documentary is a sensuous ethnography, a confrontation, and a poem.

  Derby & Groma

Kara Blake

Canada, Biographical Documentary/Artist, 201317 min, Super 16mm, Color/Black & WhiteSpanish with English subtitles

 

While taking a stroll in Buenos Aires, photo collector Pablo Cruz Aguirre came across an unusual gift.  Blowing down the street was a collection of letters, postcards and photos depicting a performing duo named Derby and Groma. Desolina Merlino, alias Derby, was born 1891 of Italian descent. Samuel Salomón Gromatzky, alias Groma, was the son of Jewish immigrants in Argentina, born in 1895.  The two performed acrobatic dance routines in theaters throughout Europe and Latin America in the late 1920’s.  With the assistance of historians and collectors, the film paints a picture of Argentina’s cultural life in the early 20th century, a world from which few traces still exist. After premiering at Hot Docs in 2013, the film has continued to gain recognition at festivals like DOC NYC and the International Festival of Films on Art.
