On Sunday, April 25, the 26th annual Chicago Latin Film Festival had a special screening of the Argentinean film Felicitas, which included an appearance from the director and the Consul General of Argentina. After the film’s presentation, the director fielded questions during a brief Q&A with the audience.
Directed by: Teresa Costantini
Running Time: 2 hrs
Release Date: Tbd
Here is a story of romance where the “true love” relationship at the core of tragedy is less interesting than those of which the lead character considers to be “distractions.” Felicitas is a seemingly average love story with an even duller dude trying to play Prince Charming. Played by Gonzalo Heredia, he’s only presented through her eyes, and her perspective is somewhat the way a girl may dream about marrying their high school quarterback boyfriend.
The movie isn’t terrible, »

Chicago – Just two weeks after the European Union Film Festival concluded at the Gene Siskel Film Center, another excellent international showcase of world cinema began in the Windy City. The 26th Chicago Latino Film Festival screens over 120 films during its two-week run, highlighting Latino filmmakers and cultures from Latin America, Portugal, Spain and the United States.
The festival is presented by the International Latino Cultural Center, in cooperation with Columbia College Chicago, and runs from Friday, April 16th to Thursday, April 29th. It kicked off last Friday with an Opening Night Gala in the form of a Mexican fiesta, commemorating Mexico’s Bicentennial Independence and Centennial Revolution Anniversary. “Round Trip,” the winner at last year’s Guadalajara Mexican Film Festival, was screened, and its director, Gerardo Tort, was in attendance. Yet there are plenty more first-class festival events in store for moviegoers during this upcoming week.
On Friday, April 23rd, »
