High Museum to Celebrate 25th Annual Latin American Film Festival


ATLANTA, GA.- The High Museum of Art will present the 25th annual Latin American Film Festival from Friday, September 24, to Saturday, October 30. This year’s festival will feature fifteen outstanding recent films, with a special focus on Argentinean film and extraordinary works from Mexico, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay. Highlights include “Waste Land,” a documentary that follows the life-changing collaboration between Brazilian artist Vik Muniz and the poorest residents of Rio de Janeiro, who recycle garbage at the world’s largest dump; “Undertow,” a Sundance Audience Award-winner from Peru; “Carancho,” an Argentinean thriller featuring Ricardo Darín (star of the 2010 Oscar-winner “The Secret in Their Eyes”); and “Alamar,” a blend of fiction and documentary from Mexico that was hailed as the find of the 2010 Toronto Film Festival.
