Pulsos Latinos is the Northwest Film Forum's showcase of Latino cinema, bringing together complex, challenging, triumphant films from Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico, Ecuador, Chile, and Peru. As the festival program explains, "An industry boom in production and funding, combined with digital technologies and an invigorated festival circuit, has transformed a once marginally exposed cinema region into a contemporary center of film gravity," and Pulsos Latinos parades choice fruits of this boom before our eyes. Among the offerings: We Are Mari Pepa (Samuel Kishi Leopo's punky coming-of-age film set on the outskirts of Guadalajara), Los Posibles (Santiago Mitre's dance film made in collaboration with Argentinian choreographer Juan Onofri Barbato), and All About the Feathers (Neta Villalobos's Costa Rican cockfighting comedy). For a full schedule of films, see nwfilmforum.org. For a mini-review of one of Pulsos Latinos' offerings, head to this week's Festive column.
