Hinojosa

Juan Pablo González


USA/Mexico, Biographical Documentary/Literature, 2013
15 min, HD, Color
English, Spanish with English subtitles

Director Juan Pablo González in attendance

HINOJOSA is a poetic tribute to one of the most important Mexican-American writers alive, Rolando Hinojosa-Smith (b. 1929). In this fifteen minute documentary, Hinojosa himself recounts his childhood in Mercedes, Texas‚ a border town in the Rio Grande Valley, and the origins that led him to inspiration and to become a pioneer of the Chicano literary movement of the 1970s. Constructed with evocative, contemplative sequences, as well as interview excerpts, the film is a manifesto of the writer’s artistic spirit.

La cuesta: Worlding a Sidewalk

Alvaro Torres, Daniel Perera


Costa Rica/Guatemala/USA, Experimental Documentary, 2013
15 min, HD, Color/Black & White
Spanish, English with English subtitles

Director Alvaro Torres in attendance

The places we notice in passing are sites where social hierarchies manifest themselves and interact. In the realm of the visible, only some people are able to remain unseen, to choose whom to see and when. Aesthetics are not how the world is presented to us but rather how it is pre-established for us--what Jacques Ranciere calls “the distribution of the sensible.” What would emerge if we explored an ordinary stretch of sidewalk in the East Side of Austin, Texas, for a period of several months? How and by whom would we be challenged aesthetically and politically? LA CUESTA evokes a place on the side of the road and the lives that sustain it. This interactive documentary is a sensuous ethnography, a confrontation, and a poem.

The Good Kind

Ofelia Yanez


USA, Comedy/Drama/Coming of Age, 2013
13 min, RED, Color
English

 Writer/director Ofelia Yanez in attendance

THE GOOD KIND is a story about new love between two young Latinas living in a repressed southern town. When Bianca and Natalia decide to skip class and head to the local gay bar, they meet a quirky drag queen bartender who is quick to pry. In the safety of this bar, the girls allow themselves to be immersed in their feelings for each other, until the dream is abruptly shattered by an unexpected incident. This everyday love story reminds us why continued dialogue and acceptance within our culture is necessary and imperative for the well-being of our youth.
