Afterbuzz TV Latino: Hola Mexico Virtual Theater
We are currently faced with a new reality due to the COVID-19 health crisis, but that is not stopping the Hola Mexico Film Festival, which proudly presents the Hola Mexico Virtual Theater, its first online film series starting May 21.
The festival, which has been postponed until September 2020, wants to give viewers the opportunity to see some of the best films that have come out of Mexico in recent years and serve as a reminder of how much Mexican cinema has grown in the past two decades. Viewers will have the opportunity to watch these films while staying safe at home.
Samuel Douek, the Founder & Director of the Hola Mexico Film Festival commented,
“We’re talking about some of the best films to have come out of Mexico yet were never released in the United States, or if they did screen in the U.S., it was for a limited time, and they are certainly not currently available to view anywhere else,”
The festival will begin with its first film Los Parecidos (The Similars)directed by Isaac Ezban where on the rainy night of October 2, 1968, eight characters waiting on a remote bus station in the middle of nowhere for a bus heading to Mexico City start experiencing a strange phenomenon.
The Hola Mexico Virtual Theater will also include the following screenings:
May 21, Los Parecidos – Dir. Isaac Ezban
May 22, El Estudiante – Dir. Roberto Girault
May 23, Revolucion– Directors- Mariana Chenillo, Fernanda Eimbcke Amat Escalante, Gael Garcia Bernal, Rodrigo Garcia, Diego Luna, Gerardo Naranjo, Rodrigo Plá, Carlos Reygadas, Patricia Riggen

May 29, Historias Del Desencanto– Dir. Alejandro Valle
