You’ve asked if we could screen more Spanish-language films. Our answer? ¡Sí, claro! This annual program from the New York International Children’s Film Festival delivers the best Latinx stories from around the world, and not just in Spanish, but also English, and even Portuguese, celebrating the many Latinx cultures, histories, identities and languages. (66min.)

Alma y Paz: Sisters Alma and Paz have to consider parting with their childhood home. While the decision seems clearer for city-dwelling Paz, for younger Alma, their place in the Mexican countryside is full of memories hard to leave behind.

Burros: In southern Arizona, on the Tohono O’odham Nation, a young Indigenous girl meets a girl her age from across the border who has been separated from her dad. (US, 2021, 14min., In English, O'odham, and Spanish | Dir. Jefferson Stein)

I’m A Vampire: In and amongst the confusion created by the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, 8-year-old Jackie believes she is turning into a vampire. (Mexico, 2020, 15min., In Spanish with English subtitles | Dir. Sofia Garza-Barba)

My Name Is Maluum: Maalum comes from a home surrounded by love and Afro-centered references. When her classmates tease her about her name, Maluum discovers the lovely legacy of her name and ancestry. (Brazil, 2021, 8min., In Portuguese with English subtitles | Dir. Luísa Copetti)

Our Lady Lupe: Chico’s luck might be a Lady Lupe in mechanic’s coveralls when he looks for a way to help out his mom, in this magical realist short about the power of family and the magic of Lotería. (US, 2021, 15min., In English & Spanish with English subtitles | Dir. Dominique Nieves)

My Grandma Matilde: With a keen eye for art and a soft-spot for all creatures, Maria’s easily distracted in the eyes of her more practical grandmother. But their relationship shifts when Maria’s grandmother remembers a secret from her own childhood. (Mexico, 2021, 10min. | Dir. Miguel Anaya Borja)
