Don’t forget, the 8th Montreal Latin American Film Festival starts this Friday and runs until April 9 at Cinema Du Parc.
Highlights of the Fest this year include The Rolling Stones Olé, Olé, Olé! A trip Across Latin America (opening night, Friday March 31 and on Sat. April 1st) in which you will be first row witnesses to the 2016 touring of the legendary band. Cult persona Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo) will be featured with his latest extravaganza, Poesia Sin Fin (note that this title is showing in Spanish with French Subs on the last day of the Fest). There is a Penélope Cruz melodrama, Ma Ma (April 8-9) directed by Julio Medem (Room in Rome, Sex and Lucia).
Argentina, Guatemala, Chile, Peru Colombia are featured as well as A Colombia-Canada-Mexico co-production, X Quinientos (the E.S.T version is playing on April 3rd). This beautiful , if uneven, film is made of three stories about young contemporary migrants and will surely appeal to the crowd.
