Several of the filmmakers will be present to discuss their work. Following the films, drinks and empanadas will be served in the garden area of the center.
ArtsLatinoNY, a multi-disciplinary strategic Latino arts alliance, unites three influential and renowned Colombian artists and their companies under one roof. Our vision is to work with the local community to educate under-served youth and adults in the arts, and bring collaborative multi-disciplinary bilingual programming to communities all over the NYC area through the medium of Latin American theater, dance, film and music.
