In conjunction with the Latin American Studies Association Congress, BAMPFA presents three decades of short Latin American films from the BAMPFA collection. Cuban filmmaker Santiago Álvarez, a master of the collage film, paid tribute to the life of Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh with 79 Springtimes. AAA Are the Three Weapons by Raymundo Gleyzer and the Argentine collective Cine de la Base features a letter to the military junta from journalist Rudolfo Walsh, who was murdered by the Anticommunist Alliance of Argentine. Bay Area filmmaker Chick Strand often traveled to Mexico in Anselmo and the Women she interwove reflections by Anselmo; his wife, Adela; and his lover, Cruz.

Screening is part of BAMPFA’s Out of the Vault series, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
