This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re featuring a programmers preview of the seventh edition of Neighboring Scenes, the annual wide-ranging showcase of contemporary Latin American cinema featuring established auteurs as well as fresh talent from the international festival scene. The preview is led by Cinema Tropical programmers Carlos A. Gutiérrez and Cecilia Barrionuevo. Featuring premieres and filmmaker Q&As, Neighboring Scenes takes place through Monday, February 28th.

Following the preview is a special conversation from our To Sir, With Love free screening about the legacy of Sidney Poitier and the figure of the Black movie star with scholars Racquel Gates and Michael Gillespie, moderated by filmmaker and critic Tayler Montague.
