    Tomás is sent to live with his brother, Sombra, after an act of mischief pushes his mother over the edge. Upon arriving, Tomás is surprised that Sombra and his roommate are on “strike” against a student revolt occurring in their college. Without the pressure of academic obligations, the three are free to pursue other interests; mainly making contact with a singer Tomás and Sombra listened to as kids. Dually nostalgic and modern, this black and white ode to French New Wave cinema is an unforgettable experience, marking the arrival of a fantastic new voice in Mexican cinema - Alonso Ruiz Palacios.

  2. The Hand that Feeds

    Rachel Lears & Robin Blotnick / Latino Public Broadcasting Showcase / United States / 2014 / Documentary / 85 mins
    You’ve seen the headlines; you may have seen the picket lines; but you may not have had a chance to understand the plight of the modern day food service worker. So a humble, very shy sandwich maker named Mahoma Lopez, begins his tale. It’s a tale about an undocumented employee uniting his coworkers to fight against the abusive conditions at a popular New York restaurant chain. This epic power struggle turns a single city block into a battlefield in America's new wage wars, and becomes the microcosm of an even greater issue.

  4. Hotel Nueva Isla

    Irene Gutierrez, Javier Labrador / Documania! / Spain/Cuba / 2014 / Documentary / 70 mins
    The formerly luxurious Hotel Nueva Isla of Old Havana is now in ruins; but it is home for people living on the fringes of society: Jorge, a retired public servant and two neighbors, Waldo and La Flaca. With almost no contact with the outside world, Jorge resembles a Don Quixote gone astray, forgotten by the world he once dearly loved. Day by day his health and body weaken like the walls of Hotel Nueva Isla. His only motivation to keep living is his certainty that in some place of the ruinous hotel, the former owners hid valuable objects before fleeing during the Cuban Revolution. This is remarkable filmmaking that captures the parallel between the decay of the human body and the stone, steel, and corporeal places in which they live.
