New Cinema from Mexico @mfaboston @BLIFFestival

In April, MFA Film presents a crop of new films by emerging filmmakers from Mexico, including Alfonso Cuarón’s Oscar-winning Roma (a film that deserves to be seen on the big screen); the exquisite drama Our Time, about a couple who raise fighting bulls in the Mexican countryside; and the documentary Mamacita, a portrait of the filmmaker’s grandmother, an extravagant beauty queen.

Co-presented with the Boston Latino International Film Festival.

Recollections and Revolutions. Two Films by João Moreira Salles @HFA_theatre

During his visit to the Harvard Film Archive, João Moreira Salles will present and discuss two of his finest films, each an insightful and introspective remembrance of things past that explores documentary cinema as an inherently personal mode of filmmaking, inherently shaped by its maker with an intimacy and immediacy all too often occulted. Santiago and In the Intense Now offer profoundly cinematic history lessons that show film to be both a window—looking out with perspicacity over the world, and over the past—and a mirror that reflects its maker and the spectator, revealing the limits of their vision.
