March 10th and April 7th Events



ILFF in Collaboration with the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts Invites You!


Film Screenings:
Historias del Desencanto
In a limbo between centuries, the world is devastated by a spell known as Disenchantment. In this fantastic context, three characters meet in the labyrinth of their dreams: Diego, who tries to make a movie about the dreams of Ximena, an adolescent experiencing her first sexual awakening, and Ainda, a bat-winged conceptual artist. Striking art design and digital imagery from directors Alejandro Valle, Felipe Gomez are a delight.

Inventos
Through the pulsating voices of Cubano Hip Hop pioneers, Inventos provides a unique insight into the realities and political movements of contemporary Cuba as they perform on stage in Cuba and then abroad for the first time. Inventos embodies the true spirit of Hip Hop; the creation of something that is powerful and useful. Puerto Rican director Jacobs-Fantauzzi's film is inspirational and serves as a reminder to all generations of the political consciousness in which Hip Hop was created and flourishes.

Scribble's Creations
Teacher-turned-director Kathy Huang takes a rare look at an often ignored community of Americans: the residents of the colonias, unincorporated settlements along the U.S.-México border. Through the travails of her former student Fernando, a young urban artist, the world of the colonias is revealed to its fullest-from leaky ceilings and family squabbles to young love and unflagging optimism.
