Film Streams to Host Second Biennial Film Series

Omaha, NE – Film Streams and UNO's Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) are presenting the 2nd biennial Cinemateca series August 27th through September 30th.

Film Streams' Executive Director says the series features 10 films from eight different countries. Rachel Jacobsen says these are underrepresented voices at the box office. She says this is an opportunity for audiences to see both recent and classic films from South America, Latin America and Spain. Jacobsen says, "They go back as far as 1964. There's some really intense dramas in here; some really interesting stories. They kinda end up being from all around the world, by really different kinds of filmmakers."

Each Tuesday during the series, a different professor from OLLAS will lead a discussion following the film. More details are available online at filmstreams.org.
