The Latinbeat regular spoke with FilmLinc Daily ahead of the North American premiere of his latest film, which opened the festival over the weekend. He talks about how the issue of class and poverty have evolved in Latin American storytelling and why La Paz was perfect for the big screen despite Argentina's current love affair with the stage.
Latinbeat newcomer Michael Wahrmann discusses Brazil's complicated relationship with its past and the rest of Latin America, using Super 8mm and his views on the perceived "death of film," and the recent protests he calls "hipster manifestations" in his home country.
