July 15: With filmmakers Paolo Javier and Lynne Sachs in person
Dir. Paola Mendoza and Gloria La Morte. 2009, 81 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. With Paola Mendoza, Sebastian Villada, Laura Montana Cortez, Anthony Chisholm. Newly arrived in New York City and deserted by her husband, Mariana (Mendoza) must find a way to financially and emotionally provide for her family in a strange city where she barely speaks the language. Directed by and starring the extraordinary Mendoza, Entre Nos is a tale of love, family, and a woman’s defiant pursuit of stability, set and filmed in Queens and featuring remarkable visual texture by Academy Award–nominated cinematographer Bradford Young (Arrival).
Preceded by: Swerve
Dir. Lynne Sachs. 2022, 7 mins. With performances by Emmy Catedral, ray ferreira, Jeff Preiss, Inney Prakash, and Juliana Sass. Five New York City performers search for a meal at a market in Queens, New York, while speaking in verse. Inspired by Paolo Javier’s Original Brown Boy poems, Swerve becomes an ars poetica/cinematica, a meditation on writing and making images in the liminal space between a global pandemic and what might come next.
