To celebrate this year’s edition of Neighboring Scenes, the annual wide-ranging showcase of contemporary Latin American cinema, which is now playing in the FLC Virtual Cinema through April 12, we asked the Film at Lincoln Center community to share their favorite films from Latin American cinema.
From Lucrecia Martel to Luis Buñuel, the FLC community mentioned a multitude of powerhouse filmmakers from the region. Many people mentioned Tomás Gutiérrez Alea’s Memories of Underdevelopment, Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund’s City of God, Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’ Bacurau, and Alfonso Cuarón’s Y tu mamá también. This ongoing series is a part of our Community Corner, which brings movie lovers together in a digital space for community and conversation. Thank you to everyone who joined the conversation via Instagram and Twitter.
Although our theaters are currently closed, the FLC Virtual Cinema and Media Center remain open 24/7. And don’t forget to mark your calendar: FLC reopens on April 16! Stay connected to Film at Lincoln Center by joining our online community on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Letterboxd, and don’t miss a thing by subscribing to the weekly newsletter.
