Join CINE LATINO, Director Rodrigo Reyes, Producer Inti Cordera, and Cinematographer Justin Chin for a conversation about the film Purgatorio: A Journey Into the Heart of the Border, moderated by Jessica Retis, Ph.D., Associate Professor, School of Journalism, Master’s in Bilingual Journalism, Program Director at The University of Arizona.
Part of the first-ever retrospective of award-winning Mexican-American director, screenwriter, and producer Rodrigo Reyes.
About the film:
Putting the physical presence and brutal beauty of the US/Mexico border front and center, and boldly leaving politics aside, Purgatorio re-imagines it as a mythical place comparable to purgatory as described by Dante.
About Cine Latino En Casa:
MSP Film Society presents Cine Latino En Casa, a virtual film festival, Thursday, October 15 through Thursday, October 22, 2020.
In this year when we cannot gather in person, and when you, our valued audience, cannot come to Cine Latino, Cine Latino will come to you - as CINE LATINO AT HOME / EN CASA!
Presenting the best of new cinema by artists from U.S. Latino, Latin American and Iberian communities and regions, with their vast cultural, linguistic, social and historical wealth; retrospectives of work by established artists; virtual Q&As with filmmakers/talent from around the globe; and resonant panel discussions and events.
Thank you all for joining us as we gather, in spirit and in force, to celebrate our diversity, our heritage, our uniqueness and our parallels and, more than ever, our individual and collective resilience, at CINE LATINO EN CASA.
