BFI South American film season

21 July 2010

South american film festival

This August, the BFI is exploring the recent renaissance of filmmaking across South America. The re-emergence of national cinemas has coincided with a tide of genuine political democracy that has swept the continent. Highlights of the season include Bolivia, an early example of New Argentine Cinema, which deals with the country’s uneasy relationship with its South American immigrants and City of God, a sprawling, engrossing account of the rise of drug gangs in Rio.
