(In Spanish with English subtitles)
Dedicamos esta edición de Nueva York al cine latinoamericano, con conversaciones sobre el séptimo arte que nos llevarán desde la ciudad de Nueva York hasta la isla de Cuba y otros rincones de América Latina.

Comenzamos en el Alto Manhattan, en la casa de Rosalva Cruz, madre del director de cine cubano Jorge Fuentes. Rosalva nos habla de la relación madre-hijo en la distancia y se convierte en el punto de partida de un viaje que nos llevará hasta las calles de La Habana, donde el mismo Jorge Fuentes nos habla de su vida y su trabajo.

De regreso en Manhattan entrevistamos a Juan Fischer, cineasta colombiano que nos habla del proceso de creación de las historias que han alimentado sus largometrajes y de cómo su experiencia como latino en Nueva York le ha brindando un nuevo punto de vista en el oficio de escribir y dirigir.

Y finalizamos en las oficinas del Festival de Cine de la Habana en el bajo Manhattan donde Patricio Lerzundi se encuentra con Elena Vilardell, responsable del programa de apoyo cinematográfica “Ibermedia”, institución que lleva más de doce años apoyando la co-producción y distribución de cine iberoamericano.

We're devoting this issue of Nueva York to Latin American cinema. These conversations on the seventh art will take us from the city of New York to the island of Cuba and other corners of Latin America.

We'll begin in uptown Manhattan, at the home of Rosalba Cruz, mother of Cuban film director Jorge Fuentes. She'll tell us about their long-distance relationship, which becomes the starting point of a journey that takes us to the streets of Havana, where Jorge Fuentes himself will tell us about his life and work.

Back in Manhattan, we'll interview Juan Fischer. This Colombian filmmaker tells us about the creative process of the stories behind his feature films and about how his experience as a Latino in New York has brought a new insight into his writing and directing.

We'll finish in the Havana Film Festival offices in downtown Manhattan, where Patricio Lerzundi will meet Elena Vilardell, director of the film support program Ibermedia, an institution that has spent over 12 year facilitating co-production and distribution of Ibero-American cinema.
