A Fantastic Woman, directed by Sebastián Lelio, Chile, 2017, R, 104 minutes, in Spanish with English subtitles. Starring Daniela Vega. 

Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer, Orlando is 20 years older and owns a printing company. After celebrating Marina’s birthday, Orlando falls seriously ill and dies. Marina is treated with suspicion; she’s being investigated, Orlando’s ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral, and Orlando’s son threatens to throw her out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Marina is a trans woman and for Orlando’s family, her sexual identity is an aberration. Marina struggles for the right to be herself—a complex, strong, forthright, and fantastic woman. A Fantastic Woman won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2018.

OLA's Latino Film Festival is celebrating its 15th year. Partnering with the Parrish Art Museum for the last 10 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.

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