If you are in Houston, don’t miss this opportunity to see a new and rich selection of films from Latin America and meet internationally acclaimed filmmakers and producers who will be at the rendezvous to present and discuss their films. An intimate event that allows the direct dialogue and understanding of contemporary filmmaking in Latin America.

Based on Carlos Cruz-Diez's ultimate quest: freeing color from form, this documentary directed by Alberto Arvelo is an intriguing conversation on the boundaries of color and the relationship between art and science. A delightful journey into the creative process and the challenges the artist faced to continue pushing the limits of his creativity. If you are in Houston, don’t miss it!
