TAIS is pleased to co-present this programme with the aluCine Latin Film Festival


As integral members of their communities, the films in this programme incorporate a child’s viewpoint in their narrative approach. The children at the centre of this program are virtuous storytellers, condensing epic tales about their cultural origins and magnifying facets of their daily lives. Yet, instead of iterating stories, they are retold with the flair only a set of curious eyes, ears and an open mind can achieve.

ABOUT aluCine Latin Film Festival


aluCine seeks to showcase excellence and innovation in contemporary Latin American film and new media works. Our annual festival functions as a vital Canadian outlet for emerging and established Latin filmmakers living in Canada, Latin America and the diaspora, while our year-round screenings, symposiums and workshops promote the development of Latin film and culture in Toronto. In all of our endeavours, aluCine strives to transgress aesthetic, ideological and geographical borders and to transcend pre-established notions of representation as they pertain to Latin American culture in Canada.
