Cine Seattle

Yet another excellent film festival is set to open in Seattle this week. The first Latino Film Festival in these parts, CineSeattle, runs from September 24-27 at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center, Northwest Film Forum, Cinerama and the Harvard Exit.

The festival screens 44 films over 4 days. The movies, which hail from Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Spain, Uruguay, the US, and Cuba, range from stories for children (La Luz del Bosque) to documentaries on the Mayan women of Chiapas (No Son Invisibles) to stories of violent passion (Te Amo Ana Elisa), as part of an ambitious program aiming to recognize the extraordinary richness and diversity of Spanish-speaking filmmakers around the world.

The festival closes on Sunday at the Cinerama with the American premier of Uruguayan director Adrian Biniez’s Gigante, which won the Silver Bear Award this year at the Berlin International Film Festival.
