This Week in Cinema Tropical, Oct 8 – 15
This week, Cinema Tropical is proud to co-present a special screening of Bellas de Noche by María Jose Cuevas at Cinépolis Chelsea as part of the 15th anniversary edition of the Celebrate Mexico Now Festival.
An intimate look into the past and present lives of Mexico’s biggest cabaret stars of the 70s and 80s, Bellas de Noche is a celebratory portrait of these women constructed through friendship and trust.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and protagonists Olga Breeskin and Princesa Yamal. Join us in commemorating a beautifully complex film that should not be missed.
If you haven’t had a chance to catch 306 Hollywood, make sure to head over to the Quad Cinema this week! This magical-realist documentary by Venezuelan-American siblings Elan and Jonathan Bogarín spins an offbeat homage to their late grandmother by staging a so-called archaeological excavation of her home in suburban New Jersey.
And the New York Film Festival comes to an end with one last screening of the festival’s centerpiece film Roma by Alfonso Curón and with an unmissable three-installment option of Mariano Llinás’ La Flor. Llinás will be giving a Director’s Talk this Friday in which he’ll speak to the challenges of creating a 14-hour-long cinematic epic.
