YOUTH IN LATIN AMERICA

While you wait for the 35th Chicago Latino Film Festival (March 28 – April 11 ) watch six films for free at the Chicago Cultural Center! The selected films are from Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, and Brazil and depict the adventures, challenges and joyful moments of youth in Latin America. The young protagonists of these films find themselves in difficult and sometimes dangerous situations because of family conflicts and political unrest in their respective countries. Viewers will follow their personal journeys to realize that despite growing up in a complicated political climate and unconventional family, these children still experience moments of joy and laughter.

Free admission on a first-come, first served basis and limited to theater capacity.
