By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

The Mexico Tourism Board (MTB) is partnering with the Chicago Latino Film Festival (CLFF) to bring prominent Mexican film productions to the 5th Annual Chicago Latino Film Festival to be held from April 17th to April 29th in select theatres around Chicago. A total of eight feature films and seven short films make up the series of Mexican movies that promise to transport the audience into Mexico’s legendary past and present.

To celebrate Mexico and honor the country’s film talent, on Wednesday, April 22nd the MTB will host the CLFF’s traditional “Noche Mexicana” (Mexican Night) at the Thorne Auditorium of Northwestern University located at 375 E. Chicago Avenue. Tickets for cocktail and movie screening ($50) are available to the public at auditorium’s box office. Attending this Noche Mexicana will be Director of Arráncame la Vida/Tear This Heart Out, Roberto Sneider.

“We take great pride in our talented artists and the magnificent places where these films are shot,” says Rodrigo Esponda, Director of the MTB in Chicago. “This artwork gracefully portrays Mexico’s culture and heritage.”
