Miami Film Festival: 'Mucho Amor' to Latina Directors
From "Lina de Lima" to "The Sleepwalkers," seven movies for a pink carpet.
You don't have to count the names of the non-Oscar-nominated women filmmakers embroidered on Natalie Portman's dress to claim the lack of visibility of female 'storytellers' beyond the red carpet. But this year's Miami Film Festival, which runs from March 6 to 15, holds wonderful surprises in a feminine and Latino key.
Guided by the spirit of our queer astrologer Walter Mercado, who will star in the closing documentary of this year's festival and which is also directed by two Latina filmmakers, Kareem Tabsch and Cristina Costantini, we recommend 7 unforgettable films that you cannot miss in sunny and cinematographic Miami. Action!
Director: Carla Forte (Venezuela)
A disturbing film in which Forte, who is also a dancer, explores the boundaries between an actress and the character she embodies, and how an abusive director can push the limits of a creative process to turn a rehearsal into almost a possession.
Director: Ana García Blaya (Argentina)
Director: Maite Alberdi (Chile)
Director: María Paz González (Chile)
What do you do when no one thinks of you?
