We should do something longer about this, but we just wanted to get it on the record: We’re currently in a golden age of film in MPLS + STPL. We have more film fests than we know what to do with, they’re mostly good, and our venues and programmers kick ass. We’re a national-level film town, and it’s great.
It’s time for the Spanish-speaking filmmakers to get some screen time, and the MSP Film Society’s Cine Latino will warm up our dreary days and nights with two weeks of new cinema. Lots of really great stuff in the lineup, including hard hitting documentary about the U.S.-Mexico drug war Kingdom of Shadows, three friends trying to have a baby in Brooklyn Nasty Baby (featuring none other than Kristen Wiig!), and the star-studded cast of the drama A Perfect Day. Tonight’s opening party takes place after the showing of The Thin Yellow Line (La delgada linea amarilla), a crowd-pleasing film about five men painting the median line down 120 miles of highway between to villages in Mexico. Thursday, Nov 19th-Friday, Nov 25th. $10 general, $7 Film Society Member, passes available.
