“The Past is a Foreign Country” and “Landscape Fever” are Spanish-language short films directed by Gabrielle Garcia Steib, sponsored by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies.

Via New Orleans Film Festival website:

The Past is a Foreign Country addresses the past as an idea of which we have control, particularly to discuss the intersection of communities in New Orleans with those in Latin America”.

Landscape Fever is a short film that addresses the narrative of a Honduran immigrant corroded by violence upon her path migrating to New Orleans. Using archival footage filmed along the U.S. / Mexican border, and sound designed by Udit Duseja merged with field recordings- the viewer may step into the world of a traumatic yet common experience that occurs among the borderlands.”

Individual passes are not available for short films. However, the NOFF offers a “Virtual Shorts Pass” for $55.00 that allows access to all short films. This pass can be purchased here

Cuban Slavery and the Atlantic World

View Full Event Description

The Gilder Lehrman Center‘€™s 22nd Annual International Conference provides a forum for discussion of the study of Cuban slavery and emancipation today, placing the island‘€™s history within the wider Atlantic world. Over the past few decades, the study of Cuban history has been an increasingly international effort. Cuban historians have interacted more and more with colleagues from abroad, with discussions grounded in the unique primary sources found in the rich Cuban archives. These scholars have demonstrated the importance of understanding Cuban slavery within the context of the Atlantic world and broad colonial networks of domination and resistance. This conference brings together scholars from Cuba and abroad working on the transatlantic slave trade, resistance, systems of control, abolition and emancipation, and the memory and legacies of slavery in Cuba. Join us for in-depth conversations about the present and future of understanding slavery and its long aftermath in this crucial part of the world.

Verde, is a Spanish-language, Dominican feature film, directed by Alfonso Morgan-Terreno.

Via New Orleans Film Festival website:
“When a bystander is killed during the robbery of a goldmine, the spilled blood stains more than the three men responsible, saturating the tight-knit fabric of their tiny Dominican village, seeping into the landscape itself. In a feature debut that pairs clear-eyed observation with ghostly intelligence, Alfonso Morgan-Terrero takes a familiar story, a dark passage of revenge and bloodshed, and sinks its noirish elements deep into the texture of its surroundings: rough-hewn structures, alleys of broken rock bathed in grimy orange streetlight, and the enveloping green of the forest. Under the film’s hypnotized gaze, kinship, brotherhood, and enmity are blurred and masquerade as one another”.
-Jonathan Kieran.

Right Near the Beach, is an English-language, Jamaican feature film, directed by Gibrey Allen.

Via New Orleans Film Festival website:
“After the death of famous runner Jeffrey Jacobs, the Jamacian public becomes enamored with the details of his life and speculates as to the motivation behind his murder. Jeffrey’s father, a reserved and kind farmer, struggles to grieve while inundated by the inescapable coverage. Through moments of blinding rage and quiet contemplation, the camera is a window into a life burdened by the death of a child that will never know justice. Against a backdrop of beautiful vistas, Right Near the Beach takes a lyrical approach to the exploration of homophobia in Jamaica. Rather than treat the murder as a voyeristic mystery, the film challenges us to contemplate the anguish of loss while everyone else debates the value of one person’s life”.
-Greta Hagen-Richardson
