Amigos del Cine Latinoamericano is an organic and heterogeneous group dedicated to showcasing Latin American visual culture for residents of the Pittsburgh area since 2003. Our goal is to discuss and respond to a multiplicity of views regarding Latin American media production, exhibition, distribution, and reception. We organize free, public monthly screening that show a wide variety of perspectives of/on the region’s culture, politics, and social issues. It takes place at the Frick Fine Arts Auditorium Room 125 at the University of Pittsburgh, Oakland campus. Past series include: “Centering the Margins”, “Globalization and Power”, “From Gender to Genre." Our next presentations from our current series "Latin America through Children's Eyes," are:
Thursday, March 28, 6.30pm: Postcards from Leningrad (Venezuela, 2002) Dir.: Mariana Rondón
Thursday April 18, 6.30pm: The Colors of the Mountains (Colombia, 2010)Dir.: Carlos César Arbeláez.
