Cinemateca At Film Streams Begins August 28th

Aug 16, 2018

Cinemateca returns to Film Streams on August 28th for its sixth season  

The biennial Latino/Latin-American and Spanish film series is offered in partnership with UNO’s Office of Latino/Latin American Studies, or OLLAS.  

Patrick Kinney, Communications Director for Film Streams, says all five of the films in this series were directed by women, and they come from Mexico, Spain, Argentina and Brazil. 

“The series will consist of five events that will take place on Tuesdays. And all of those will be accompanied by a talk led by a scholar or a community member and will be preceded by food that has a tie to the community of origin of the film.  (The first film) Zama is a new film by one of the stars of world cinema, Lucrecia Martel. And it’s about a Spanish civil servant who is stationed far away in Argentina, and, frustrated by his assignment, he decides to take a desperate mission.”

Kinney says there will also be two family-friendly films as part of their  Forever Young series – each one running for two weeks.  He says Cinemateca has been very popular in previous years, and he does recommend purchasing tickets in advance.  All of the screenings are at 7 p.m.
