Latin America is the cradle of great works of the seventh art and is the seedbed of so many others. Cuba has the most prestigious Film University in Latin America. Mexico has an overproduction of films of all kinds. In Argentina, independent film proliferates. In Buenos Aires, there are plenty of movie theaters, cinema cycles, and film universities. There are many stories to tell, in the form of a classic story, in the form of a short film, in the form of a documentary film. Come and discover the diversity in Latin American Cinema.
Latin American Cinema
The cinema paints us, it describes us, it lets us get closer to other cultures from an aesthetic and a point of view. Our different accents and pronunciations are part of our culture. From Wanderlust we think it is important (and fun!) to be able to listen and differentiate those sounds. And, at the same time, to know the Latin American culture at the hands of those who best portray it.
Undoubtedly, one of the biggest challenges when it comes to practicing your Spanish is listening. Movies represent our continent, our emotions, and our thoughts. Is not so easy to enjoy, because you’ll be focused on understanding every little word. But, with time, the idea of translating everything will change. And you’ll be able to understand the words without doing the translation in your head.
With more or less budget, with more or less famous stars, Latin American Cinema is full of topics similar to the movies of your own country. But also, is full of topics related to the Latin American current situation, the “third world” situation. And those topics are treated in a way you can emphasize with them, wherever you come from.
