Filtered latin-ness: Discovering Latin America

I am Cuba

Another month, another Latin American film festival in London. In November the Tate Modern will host three events which are part of the the Discovering Latin America film fesatival. These include screenings of Vicente Ferraz's epic documentary on Cuban-Soviet relations, I Am Cuba, and Carlos Reygadas's controversial film Battle in Heaven (Ed: I have an interview with Reygadas, which will be published soon) and a discussion about strategies for documentary practice in Latin America. Discovering Latin America is a non-governmental organisation founded in 2002 to promote Latin American culture, to finance solidarity projects in the region and to generate new artistic arenas using the energy and power of cinema.
