Lincoln Center hosts its second edition of Neighboring Scenes, an annual showcase of contemporary Latin American cinema. The festival exhibits the breadth of styles, techniques, and approaches employed by Latin American filmmakers today with impressive recent productions from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, and, for the first time, the Dominican Republic.
Neighboring Sounds' program ranges from political thriller to bleak comedy to observational documentary, with many first and second works from emerging directors. Furthermore, half of the films in this year's program are directed or co-directed by women, who are underrepresented in the region.
Q&A's with the filmmakers will follow many screenings. Neighboring Scenes runs January 26-31st at Lincoln Center. Co-presented with Cinema Tropical.
