Description

Screening before the feature film Lupe Under the Sun.

Separated by years of immigration policy, a young girl dreams of meeting her grandmother for the first time. Thanks to the bi-national cooperation of governments on both sides of the US/Mexico border, her grandmother embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to reunite with her undocumented loved ones.


CINE LATINO RETROSPECTIVE – RODRIGO REYES

Award-winning Mexican-American director, screenwriter, and producer Rodrigo Reyes has screened his films in over 50 film festivals around the world. Named one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film by Filmmaker Magazine, he was the recipient of the 2016 National Endowment for the Arts Fellow at MacDowell Colony, the 2017 National Mediamaker Fellowship by the Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC), the Spotlight on Storytellers Award from the Sundance Institute, as well as the Guggenheim Fellowship and Creative Capital Award. Rodrigo’s work has received the support of Tribeca Film Institute, Sundance Institute, California Humanities Council, Film Independent, IFP Narrative and Documentary Labs, the Berkeley Film Foundation, the Bay Area Video Coalition, the Mexican Film Institute, and ITVS Open Call.

Members of Reyes’ creative team, acclaimed film critics, guest programmers, film funders and scholars will join us during the festival to celebrate his deeply moving, insightful and uncompromising cinematic voice.
