Hola México

26 Jun

The Hola México Film Festival opens this summer in New York City. From 23 to 29 July, 13 films will screen. The festival was organised by 29 year old Samuel Douek who founded a similar festival in Sydney in 2006 while studying in Australia, to showcase Mexican films other than those by the famous ‘tres amigos’. Films, including Cannes Jury Prize winner Stellet licht by Carlos Reygadas, will show at Quad Cinema in Union Square. Read more.

Also in El Universal, Karl Rozemeyer interviews Patricia Riggen, whose La misma luna ignited a bidding war at the last Sundance, to discuss working in Mexico and the United States. Read more.

In other news, La Crónica announces that Cuarón and Italian film critic Annalisa Bugliani are separating. The two met at the Venice Film Festival in 2001. Read more.

    How about a Mexican film from its Golden Era: It’s 1954 and Maria Victoria stars in “Los Paquetes de Paquita.” If you happen to be in New York, July 26, 2008 @ 5pm stop by Thomas Jefferson Park in Spanish Harlem on First Ave. Grab some authentic Mexican food and dine under the New York moonlight while watching the film. It’s all FREE and the topper: the Icon and legendary Maria Victoria, the film’s star will make a special appearance. Only in New York. The event is brought to all Mexican cine fans by TuTv.
