¡Hola NYICFF! (2022)

You’ve asked if we could screen more Spanish-language films. Our answer? ¡Sí, claro! Our annual program delivers the best Latinx stories from around the world, and not just in Spanish, but also English, and even Portuguese, celebrating the many Latinx cultures, histories, identities and languages. From the playfully mystical storytelling in Our Lady Lupe, where an icon in mechanic’s coveralls has the power to change a young boy’s fate, to the moving drama of Alma y Paz, in which two young sisters must leave their countryside home behind, to the beautiful stop motion of My Grandma Matilde, which celebrates everyday hard work and the art it happens alongside, these expansive stories are lasting conversation-starters in any language.
