In the darkness of a soundproof recording studio, a conversation sparks between two voice actors dealing with a shared tragedy.

OLA's Latino Film Festival is now going into its 14th year. Partnering with the Parrish Art Museum for the last nine years, OLA's Latino Film Festival continues to choose films from around the globe that challenge, engage and entertain both Spanish and English-speaking audiences. Most of OLA's festivals have also featured music, dancing, food, and wine from Latino/Hispanic countries. Cultural bridges are strengthened through this shared experience.

Advance registration encouraged.

The Parrish Art Museum and OLA wish to acknowledge the generous in-kind support of ProChile and Testa Wines of the World.

Friday nights are made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Corcoran Group, Bridgehampton National Bank, and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.
