Experience new and classic cinema from and about Brazil, Colombia and Peru as this Indianapolis art museum struts its stuff in this mini film festival.

Friday night, SADCO (Sociedad de Amigos de Colombia) celebrates its 25th anniversary with a film and visit from Pepe Vargas, Founder and Executive Director of the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago and Director of the Chicago Latino Film Festival. Vargas will discuss the impact of Latino film on cinema worldwide and introduce When the Waves Break / Cuando rompen las olas from director Riccardo Gabrielli (2006, 95 minutes), a Colombian tale of two boys who make a journey to fulfill their grandmother’s dream.

Saturday features Bye Bye Brasil, a Portuguese film with English subtitles directed by Carlos Diegues (1979, 110 minutes).

The film is preceded by the Brazilian documentary short Isle of Flowers / Ilha das flores again a in Portuguese with English subtitles directed by Jorge Furtado (1989, 13 minutes). It is an ironic, rapidly edited comment on capitalism, justice and the value of life.
