Latin American Films. Yareah magazine next issue is titled “Your movie”. We are receiving articles and opinions from all quarters. Different likes and different choices because cinema is a global phenomenon. How about yours?

Today, we like to talk about Latin American films. From Mexico to Argentina, they had and have great filmmakers (Guillermo del Toro, Valeria Sarmiento, Alfonso Cuaron, Arturo Ripstein…) and movies (Nine Queens, Strawberry and Chocolate, City of God, The Headless Woman…). The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has wanted to honor Latin American cinema.

From March 14 to March 21, 2013, join them for a weeklong film festival that explores emerging Latin American cinematic talent. From intense, family-focused dramas to a sensitive coming-of-age story about first love, the film series represents the best of contemporary filmmaking in the region.

La Sirga

La Sirga by William Vega (Colombia, 2012, 90 min.). After escaping from government forces, Alicia seeks refuge at her uncle’s rundown and remote lakeside inn, “La Sirga.” There, on a swampy beach, she tries to settle down, but a brutal war wages around them. Vega dramatizes the violence through strained conversations, the sound of rain hitting the tin roof, the creaking floorboards, and the rumble of distant thunder. With remarkable and eloquent restraint, Vega quietly and intimately immerses us in the conflicts of his native country. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Other movies in this series:

-Thursday till Sunday by Dominga Sotomayor (Chile, 2012, 90 min.)

-Post Tenebras Lux by Carlos Reygadas (Mexico, 2012, 120 min.)

-Jonathas’ Forest (A Floresta de Jonathas) by Sergio Andrade (Brazil, 2012, 99 min.)

-Clandestine Childhood (Infancia Clandestina) by Benjamin Ávila (Argentina, 2012, 110 min.)

Definitely, fresh and vibrant voices from Latin America. If you have the chance, don’t miss this opportunity.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
