Cine Las Americas, known for its yearly film festival, supports Latin filmmakers by screening films year round. It has screened more than 1,200 Latino and indigenous films in 14 years. Based out of Austin, the multi-cultural non-profit organization’s mission is to promote cross-cultural understanding and growth by educating, entertaining and challenging diverse audiences through film and media arts. The organization also partners with local schools to create educational media programs that serve the minority youth in the city.
As part of the organization’s signature film series at the Alamo Drafthouse, Cine Las Americas presents Hermano ( Brother), a Venezuelan drama directed by Marcel Rasquin. The film narrates the story of two brothers who are passionate about soccer. While Daniel, an exceptional striker, dreams about becoming a professional soccer player, Julio, the captain, can only worry about feeding his family with dirty money. Their big break comes when a soccer scout encourages them to try out for the city’s best team. But a tragedy will make them choose between their dream, family or revenge.
Hermano, screens at 4:00pm on Sunday Dec. 11 at the Alamo Drafthouse Village located at 2700 W. Anderson Lane.
