Aves de Paso. Directed by Rachel Lears > Julio 10 > Cinema Tropical Music & Film Series > 92Y Tribeca > AVES.


Ernesto and Yisela have moved to the capital, leaving behind their respective hometowns on the borders of Brazil and Argentina. After many years of composing songs that reflect their origins, both decide to explore new horizons and each seeks to fulfill the dream of recording a first album. While Yisela struggles to reconcile the emerging possibilities of a career in Uruguay with her plans to move to Argentina, Ernesto confronts personal conflicts that threaten to sabotage his creative passion. The film fuses the arts of documentary film and music, interweaving the songs and stories of these two young composers. With vérité cinematography and an unforgettable soundtrack, Birds of Passage explores the challenges of being a young artist and the art of searching, inside and outside of oneself.

* Reportero. Directed by Bernardo Ruiz > Julio 11 > New America Foundation NYC > REPORTERO.


Mexico is one of the deadliest places in the world to be a journalist. Reporters who dare to cover the country's war on drugs are all too often kidnapped or assassinated for doing their jobs. In the feature documentary, "Reportero," a veteran reporter and his colleagues at an independent newsweekly in Tijuana defy the drug cartels and corrupt government officials to continue reporting the news.

* FOR GREATER GLORY > CRISTIADA > Directed by Dean Wright > En Catelera > GLORY.



An impassioned group of men and women each make the decision to risk it all for family, faith and the very future of their country, as the film's adventure unfolds against the long-hidden, true story of the 1920s Cristero War ­the daring people¹s revolt that rocked 20th Century North America.
Academy Award® nominee Andy Garcia headlines an acclaimed cast as General Gorostieta, the retired military man who at first thinks he has nothing personal at stake as he and his wife (Golden Globe nominee Eva Longoria) watch Mexico fall into a violent civil war. Yet the man who hesitates in joining the cause will soon become the resistance's most inspiring and self-sacrificing leader, as he begins to see the cost of religious persecution on his countrymen . . . and transforms a rag-tag band of rebels into a heroic force to be reckoned with. The General faces impossible odds against a powerful and ruthless government. Yet is those he meets on the journey ­ youthful idealists, feisty renegades and, most of all, one remarkable teenager named Jose ­ who reveal to him how courage and belief are forged even when justice seems lost.

* SAVAGES. Directed by Oliver Stone > With Benicio del Toro. En Cartelera.

* TO ROME WITH LOVE. Directed by Woody Allen. With Penélope Cruz. En Cartelera.

* FAMILY FILMS > June - July > Matinee series > Film Society of Lincoln Center > Special discount ticket price: $6 for everyone > FAMILY.

COMING IN AUGUST:

* El Topo > Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky. México, 1970. > Agosto 24-25 > IFC Center > TOPO.



Jodorowsky’s legendary, notorious cult hit essentially created the genre of the midnight movie — a spectacle so stunning and bizarre that normal hours couldn’t contain it. Incorporating influences from tarot to the Bible to surrealism into a mind-blowing western, Jodorowsky cast himself as the leather-clad gunman, El Topo (‘the mole’), who wanders through a desert strewn with mystical symbols on an unnamed quest, leaving blood and carnage in his wake. Declared a masterpiece by no less than John Lennon himself, EL TOPO tops even the most outrageous aesthetic experiments of its radical era and remains unmatched in its provocations and strange beauty. Long unavailable, EL TOPO is presented in a gorgeous new restoration personally overseen by Jodorowsky.
