Accompanied by images and video footage from present-day Peru, you’ll hear pieces like El cóndor pasa (a familiar song that has been covered by Simon and Garfunkel) and Illapa, which features traditional Andean flutes. Harth-Bedoya says, “These concerts can present a whole new world to people who have never been to South America.”

Full of campy, low-budget fun, Mirageman finds local bouncer and martial arts expert Maco Gutiérrez stumbling on a robbery in progress. After bravely thwarting the heist, Maco dons one of the criminals’ blue ski masks to rescue a damsel in distress. Empowered by his brush with vigilante justice, he decides to embark on a one-man quest to make the streets of Santiago safe and inspire hope in his mentally unstable little brother. But superhero living is not quite as simple as Maco assumed. 90 min.  Spanish with English subtitles.

Gonzalo Justiniano

Big in heart and cheerfully zealous in its examination of an unconventional family unit, Lokas tells the story of nineyear-old Pedro, his homophobic single father, and the pair’s adjustment to moving in with Pedro’s gay grandfather. Showing great affection for its vibrant Chilean locations and colorful characters, this amusing charmer is more concerned what it means to be a responsible man in this world than what it means to be straight or gay. 90 min.  Spanish with English subtitles.

José Luis Torres Leiva

Intoxicating visuals highlight this meditation on loneliness and isolation. Torres Leiva is an artist with the camera, and in effect he paints a hushed portrait of a few interconnected characters searching for love or sex or familial affection against the rain-soaked rural coast of Chile. Like any great painting, the viewers are challenged to fill in the blanks of the story. That the young director entrusts his audience with this task is refreshing. 110 min.  Spanish with English subtitles.
