Latino and LATAM Films at Toronto International Film Festival

Latino and Latin American films were well-represented at the Toronto International Film Festival ("TIFF"). Asides from well-established films that already garnered mainstream hype, complex and insightful films like Sergio & Sergei by Ernesto and Marta Daranas and Tigre by Silvina Schnicer and Ulises Porra Guardiola.

Daranas' film focuses on the real life rescue of Russian cosmonaut stranded in space after the collapse of the Soviet Union. You can read more about the film on Deadline. Schnicer and Guardiola's film Tigre touches on the such themes like female loneliness and burdens of the past. Both films fit perfectly in the lineup with other quality films like the following: 

Shape of Water - Guillermo del Toro - Vox Review
