This season, selections are focused on highlighting the richness of the African Diaspora experience in Latin America. As we have experienced in the U.S., conversations about race are necessarily complex, affecting individuals, families, neighborhoods, and ultimately the nation. Through this series, we invite exploration of the intersections of Latinx and African-origin identities within and across the borders of the Americas. On Thursday, January 14, Dr. Jean Ann Lauer, Program Advisor to Cine Las Americas, will guest moderate a conversation with Jorge Thielen Armand, director and co-writer of La Soledad.
