LACIS 2024 Festival de Cine with the Cinematheque

This event has passed.

Cinematheque, 4070 Vilas Hall
@ 7:00 pm -

This year’s edition of our annual LACIS Festival de Cine splits a spotlight on South and Central American cinema between restorations of black-and-white classics and the first area screenings of two exciting new features. The selections begin with Emilio Fernández’ revelatory musical melodrama, Victims of Sin, and the second program is a double feature of Argentine films noir from the late 1940s and early 1950s: If I Should Die Before I Wake and Hardly a Criminal. Our Premiere selections are the Brazilian Pictures of Ghosts, Kleber Mendonça Filho’s marvelous essay movie about Recife’s movie theaters, and, from Argentina and Chile, The Settlers.
