Location: Silberman School of Social Work Room 115 AB

Event Organizer: Latino Film Market


June 16 @ 6:00 pm 8:30 pm EDT

Join CENTRO and the Latino Film Market for two nights of film screenings, Q&A sessions, and more!

Perfume de Gardenias

CENTRO and The Latino Film Market welcomes filmmakers, critics, film enthusiasts, and the general audience to join us for a screening and Q&A of Perfume de Gardenias, directed by Macha Colón and created by a mostly female production team. The film follows Isabel who, after the death of her husband, is enlisted by a coterie of gossipy elderly women in her neighborhood to plan and create custom funerals. After the screening, you’ll hear directly from Colón about her vision and the challenges of making a feature length film.

The Latino Film Market aims to create, showcase and promote Latine content and upcoming filmmakers who do not have access to having their movie distributed widely. This evening is put on in conjunction with the Puerto Rico Queer Film Fest, Braid Communications, Thurito Martinez Enterprises, Power House One and volunteers.
