The festival's goal is to provide the West Michigan community and students with a unique and enriching opportunity to acquaint themselves with the latest and most acclaimed Latin American films.
With that objective in mind, our committee has selected fourteen movies from different geographical areas – Chile, México, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, República Dominicana, Bolivia and Argentina – focusing on a wide range of contemporary subjects. Laura Amelia Guzmán, Dominican Filmmaker will present her film Jean Gentil on Sunday, April 6th at 7.00 pm. Furthermore, Dr. Fernando Fenando Holguin (Colorado State University) will introduce the topic of the border’s conflict between República Dominicana and Haití in his lecture: “Our Neighbors, the Primitives” on Sunday April 6th, at 6.30 pm., before the screening of Jean Gentil.
