Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?)
Movie / Film

Part of the MSU Latinx Film Festival An excitingly fresh take on some classic themes and ideas, "The Second Mother" dissects with both impeccable precision and humor such matters as class differences and family. The film centers around Val, a hard- working live-in housekeeper in modern day Sao Paulo. Val (stunning performed by Regina Casé) is perfectly content to take care of every one of her wealthy employers' needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son, who she has raised since he was a toddler. But when Val's estranged daughter Jessica suddenly shows up, the unspoken but intrinsic class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray. Jessica is smart, confident, and ambitious, and refuses to accept the upstairs/downstairs dynamic, testing relationships and loyalties and forcing everyone to reconsider what family really means. In Portuguese with English subtitles ]]>

Sealed Cargo (Carga Sellada)
Movie / Film

Part of the MSU Latinx Film Festival With a promotion in the offing and his beautiful wife Nena at his side, things couldn't be better for ambitious policeman Hector Mariscal. Before he can enjoy the good life, though, a final, top-secret assignment must be carried out: to transport-by rail-a highly toxic cargo across Bolivia's high desert backcountry and "dispose" of it in a remote indigenous village. With kindly engineer Klinger guiding his beloved steam locomotive Federica, and presented with a crew of hapless cops and an unexpected young stowaway, Mariscal finds that there's much more on the line than he imagined in this sharp, energetic satire Spanish with English subtitles]]>

Tempest (Tempestad)
Movie / Film

In Spanish with English Subtitles A poignant doc by celebrated filmmaker Tatiana Huezo, Tempestnarrates the parallel journey of two women. Mirror-like, it reflects the impact of the violence and impunity that afflict México. Through their voices, we are drawn into the heart of their feelings, steeped in loss and pain, but also love, dignity and resistance. On a normal day on her way to work, Miriam is arrested on suspicion of human trafficking. While the government reports that a criminal gang has been rounded up, in reality a group of innocent Mexicans has fallen victim to the vagaries of a corrupt system. After her detention, she is handed over to a private prison controlled by the Organized Crime, where she is forced to pay a monthly fee to remain alive. Adela works as a clown in a traveling circus. Ten years ago, her life was irreversibly transformed; every night during the show, she evokes her missing daughter, Monica. Tempest has screened at more than 60 film festivals worldwide, collecting awards in Berlin, Lima, Havana, Madrid, Cork and many others.   Part of the MSU Latinx Film Festival ]]>

As I Walk Through the Valley
Movie / Film

"As I Walk Through The Valley" documents 40 years of musical history and Mexican-American culture. It is the first comprehensive look at rock music in the Rio Grande Valley. The film is an oral history of the popular music of The Valley told by the musicians, promoters, producers, and scenesters who lived it. The Rio Grande Valley has been called a flashpoint for the creation of Mexican-American Culture in the United States. Roughly 230 miles south of San Antonio, the river delta known as The Valley is a network of cities and roads that sits at the southernmost border between the United States and Mexico. Combining over 100 hours of interviews as well as never-before-seen archival footage and photographs, this documentary tracks the musical evolution of a region that has forged its own unique identity between two countries.
