The year's best movies from Mexico to Argentina are on their way to Sydney this September. Returning to Dendy Opera Quays, this year's Sydney Latin American Film Festival will stretch across five jam-packed days, combining award winning dramas, joyous family comedies, hard-hitting documentaries and more.
The festival begins on Thursday, September 8 with a screening of Jules and Dolores, a Brazilian film about a gambling addict who 'accidentally' steals the World Cup trophy. It will be followed by an opening night fiesta at Cruise Bar complete with musical performances by the Kriola Collective and DJ Don Juan.
Further highlights from the festival program include Cuban HIV drama The Companion, Argentinean road movie Road to La Paz and Chilean political documentary Beyond My Grandfather Allende. The festival will conclude with Mexican coming-of-age comedy Jeremy preceded by a performance by legendary Mexican harpist Victor Valdes.
