A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN
2004, 100 min, USA/Mexico/Spain, Dir: Sergio Arau

How do you make the invisible visible? You take it away. Misunderstandings and humorous situations abound in this comedic satire when California wakes up one morning to discover that a third of its population has vanished - the sole characteristic linking the 14 million disappeared being their Hispanic background. As the state begins to deteriorate, the crisis is reflected in the lives of a teacher (Maureen Flannigan), a senator (John Getz), a ranch owner (Muse Watson) and a reporter (Yareli Arizmendi).


HUNDRA
1983, 90 min, Spain/USA, Dir: Matt Cimber

Watch out Conan, Hundra is here! From director Matt Cimber (GLOW - Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) comes this feminist flip on the sword-and-sandal genre, starring Laurene Landon (MANIAC COP) as a fierce and skilled warrior who despises the influence of man. When her family is slain, she seeks revenge in this action-packed fantasy epic.


ENDLESS POETRY
POESÍA SIN FIN
2016, ABKCO Films, 128 min, Chile/UK/France, Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky

Continuing the autobiographical story begun in THE DANCE OF REALITY, this film takes place in Chile in the 1940s, when the 20-year-old Jodorowsky leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago. Living among inspirational artists including Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín and Nicanor Parra (all unknowns at the time, who would later become driving forces of 20th-century Hispanic literature), Jodorowsky’s journey of sensual experimentation leads him to realize his innermost desires and passions. An ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing one’s life forever, ENDLESS POETRY bursts with Jodorowsky’s unique surreal and psychedelic visual language.
