Highlights from the 2015 Film Festival Season

The New York Asian Film Festival, The Pan African Film Festival and The San Diego Latino Film Festival are three news worthy cinema events from the 2015 season.   A selection of trailers from each festival showcase the variety of film-making in the United States today and highlights the diversity.

San Diego Latin Film Festival 2015

Cows wearing glasses is a complex representation of the human condition. It’s the story of a man, Marcelino Sariego, a painter and university professor in Puerto Rico living the last days of his life and realizes he has to bring closure to familial conflicts with his only daughter (Cristina Soler).

Everyone is Dead is about Lupe, an agoraphobic, who is constantly at odds with her teenage son and her superstitious Mexican mother. It takes a drastic Day of the Dead ritual to wake her up and teach her the value of truly saying goodbye. With a classic rock en español vibe, this dramedy delivers subtle performances amidst a magical realism backdrop.

The Pan African Film Festival 2015

Xire is a sensory journey evoking the ancestors of the African men who imprinted their religious, spiritual and physical practices when they set foot onto the South American continent.

Strings Attached is a drama about a teenage girl from Harlem who risks everything in order to play the violin.
