I attended DCIFF's Latino night at GALA Hispanic Theater, which provided a wonderful selection of films from Latin America and Spain. Two of the highlights were No son invisíbles (They Are Not Invisible), a documentary detailing the Nobel Prize winning program to raise women out of poverty with small loans, and Mejor escucharlo (It's Better To Hear It), a charming and bittersweet film about love and death from Puerto Rico.

Screenwriter Matt Palasz was in attendance, representing his film Peixe Vermelho (Red Fish). Palasz, a Brooklyn resident, teamed up with director Andreia Vigo to bring this Brazilian set short film to the screen. Peixe Vermelho is best described as “Lynchian,” resembling the esoteric style of famed director David Lynch. So it's entirely appropriate (and a bit of a coup) that David Lynch himself puts in a cameo appearance.

There are still many films and seminars this weekend at the DCIFF, including Harry Shearer's master class and the screening of his documentary The Big Uneasy. And I'll take one more opportunity to plug local filmmaker Evan Marshall's documentary, Late Rounders, screening Sunday in Arlington. If you're looking for some entertainment and/or some enlightenment this weekend, you can't go wrong with the DCIFF. Check out their website for scheduling and ticket information.
