FIC/CINÉ : Latin American Fiction into Film

Latin American cinema has a long-standing love affair with literature, and some of its outstanding achievements have involved close collaboration between authors and film directors. Fic/Ciné features a combination of classic and contemporary films that interpret some of the most beloved literary works of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Presented in collaboration with the Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles (LACLA), an organization dedicated to promoting and increasing the visibility of Latin American and Latino cinema, the program includes Raul Ruíz's Tres tristes tigres (1968, Chile), Joaquim Pedro de Andrade's Macunaíma (1969, Brazil), Arturo Ripstein's El imperio de la fortuna (1986, Mexico), Busi Cortés's El secreto de Romelia (1990, Mexico) and a rare screening of La negra Angustias (1949) by pioneer Mexican female filmmaker Matilde Landeta.
