According to organizers, the event that will be free and will run until May 22, has as its backdrop the ‘panorama of contemporary Latin and Brazilian cinema: award-winning films, premieres, thematic exhibitions, tables, workshops and debates’.
Through the event’s official websites on social networks, the public was able to check out some of the creative and thematic contents of Pachamama, developed by visual artist Leo Lage.
Such exhibition gathers films, documentaries, thematic screenings, discussion tables and a production workshop.
‘We launched the programming with more than 50 Latin American films, with many premieres in Brazil. Our workshop had more than 150 participants,’ said the festival’s organizer, Sergio Carvalho.
The festival opens with the unpublished screening of Liborio, a film about Dominican leader Papa Liborio (Father Liborio), and will end with the screening of King Kong in Asunción, the most recent work by Camilo Cavalcante, winner of the 2020 Gramado Film Festival.
