NCLAFF: El Velador
Date: October 14, 2020
Directed by Natalia Almada
Length: 72 minutes
This documentary gives audiences a portrait of a sprawling graveyard in Culiacán, Mexico, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa. The rapidly expanding cemetery has become the burial ground of choice for the country’s slain drug lords.
The 2020 NCLAFF celebrates the festival’s 35th anniversary with an innovative format, a virtual synchronic model. We will start with NCLAFF Conversations | A mini Web Conference: Latin American and Caribbean Film in the Era of Neoliberalism (1985-2020) on October 9 and 10, 2020. We will follow with ten days (October 9 to 18), of screenings/streaming. The films were selected from the hundreds of films shown during the past 35 years of the NCLAFF. The NCLAFF is a great way for students to engage with Latin American history, cinema, and current topics!
