NC LATIN AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL 2014
September 25 – November 6, 2014 | Festival Week. October 4 – 11, 2014
This year the festival focuses on the way music/rhythm is intertwined within the social, cultural, and historical constructions of the region. Sound-scapes and rhythm-scapes that represent the joys and sorrows and the individual and collective voices of peoples across the hemisphere will encapsulate the fundamental relationship between life and music in the Americas. Audiences will enjoy the presence of filmmakers, musicians, and artists.
