7:00pm - 9:00pm Screening of Luminarias

Film Fiesta affords the public an opportunity to continue the discussion by featuring the writer, director and actors from the independent film, Luminarias, live and in-person at the screening. Luminarias is a comedic examination of love in the LA Latino quick lane, as four independent Chicanas from various walks of life struggle with balancing traditional views of relationships in a contemporary multi-cultural world. Mirroring the great music from the film, performed by such notables as Tito Puente, La Lupe and India, will be the local favorites, Mariachi Vasquez, as well as a little LA-Mex cuisine.

FREE
6:00pm - 6:30pm Reception
6:30pm - 7:00pm Dance Performance by Chilean Grupo Folclorico Artistico Copelec
7:00pm - 9:00pm Screening of No!

The resistance to the repressive regime of Augosto Pinochet goes from revolution to social satire in the Academy Award nominated film; Gael Garcia Bernal takes the screen in a story about an actual drive to vote an entrenched dictator out of power. It asks the questions, “Can a revolutionary movement be reduced to an advertising slogan? Can glitz and glamour, replacing substance, really win in a rigged election?" Edgy, funny and provocative, No! has made many top ten best film lists. Also, performing live will be Grupo Folclorico Artistico Copelec from Chile. Please RSVP to Niecie.Washington@denvergov.org.
