Dear NAICA compatriots,
I am writing to you from an overcast and semi-chilly Texas town. Actually it’s the capital. Of Texas, which was once (pompously) it’s own independent nation. A whole other county. Sure, if you say so.
Anyway, NAICA is here to check out the super-indie latino and indigenous inflected film festival Cine Las Americas. We’ve met a few cool new people: like some guy named Dave who is the Mexican-German Nathan Arcand (pictures are forthcoming as proof) and the festival director, Eugenio del Bosque-a very nice man whom we will have a sit down interview with tomorrow.
It’s an intimate affair here at Cine, small and welcoming with plenty of unknown films from all over Latin America, the U.S. and Canada. So far we have seen many short films of excellent quality and one documentary by Navajo filmmaker to watch-Bennie Klain. You will see more of him here in the (web) pages of NAICA. We will post reviews, interviews and more thoughts in the next day or so so stay tuned.
