Asian Perspectives

This special series of films addresses themes of Asian identity within a Latin American context. The program gives voice to a segment of the Latin American population that is often ignored in film or relegated to peripheral, stereotypical characterizations. This series is intended to raise awareness of Asian perspectives by presenting three recent feature-length documentary films that reflect upon and educate viewers about the long history of travel, immigration and cultural exchange between Asia and Latin America.


  • The Girl from the South (La chica del sur) by Argentine director José Luis García (p. )
  • Inori by Mexican director Pedro González-Rubio (p. )
  • Nikkei by Venezuelan director Kaori Flores Yonekura (p. )
