A revelation about Oscar Torres, her unknown and once world-famous queer filmmaker cousin, sends Victoria down a path of self-discovery through reconstructions of his intimate memories living in the 1950s authoritarian Caribbean, as Victoria leads re-enactments of his unproduced screenplays with the family who erased him.
Vancouver Latin American Film Festival
Founded in 2003, the Vancouver Latin American Film Festival is a registered charitable organization with the mission to provide a forum for the promotion and exhibition of Latin American cinema in Vancouver. This 11-day annual festival encourages dialogue among cultures, and supports and celebrates the art of contemporary Latin American, Latin-Canadian, and Indigenous filmmaking.
VLAFF’s mandate is the encouragement and appreciation of motion pictures as a medium of art, information and education.
Since 2003, VLAFF has provided audiences with the unique opportunity to watch inspiring and innovative films and interact with guest filmmakers from across Latin America and the diaspora.
