A Pop-Up Cinema That Celebrates Latin-American Film Is Coming To London

South Social Film Festival is bringing “i-d-e-n-t-i-t-i-e-s” to Dulwich Park. 

As the madding crowd once demanded to Marge in The Simpsons – “Film Festival! Film Festival” (Not Boo-urns). And that train of thought applies to pretty much any weekend now that restrictions have been decreased and we can enjoy the wonderful world of cinema again.

So, it’s a good thing that a pop-up cinema is hitting Dulwich park at the end of the month. South Social Film Festival is bringing the new “i-d-e-n-t-i-t-i-e-s” show to Dulwich Park to celebrate Latin American film on July 24-25.

Each film at the event has been chosen as a celebration for their fascinating, and funny, exploration of themes surrounding gender, politics and immigration. “I-d-e-n-t-i-t-i-e-s” film programme is “paying tribute to LATINX WOMEN”, through the intricate narratives on screen.

Included in the programme are Wings, a short film by Brazilian director Tiago Di Mauro giving an ode to feminity through a woman’s innate ability fly and be free; Bricherxs, a comedy from Peruvian duo Vanessa Geldres & Ian Ilbert, telling the story of two shop workers who attempt to charm a British tourist to access his sweet Visa-free passport; Jamaica & Tamarindo, which examines Ebony Bailey’s work as a black Mexican filmmaker; and Oda a los Frijoles (Ode To The Beans) – a film by Karolina Esqueda from Mexico, that is simply a rendition to beans!

Alongside the fine lineup of films at the festival, attendees will also be able to take part in a number of dance workshops as well as having plenty of food stalls to choose from.

Saturday night (July 24) is Mexican night, beginning at 7pm with Mestizo Folklore group teaching Mexican dancing and the famous all women Mariachi band, Las Adelitas. Plus, Saturday night (July 25) will celebrate Argentina, with a Milonga band headed by Javier Fioramonti and a tango group giving you the platform to bust your moves.

Get tickets here to the wonderful film festival.
