From touching and personal tales, to saucy animations and exquisite examinations into the world around us, SLAFF returns to the Dendy Opera Quays and Addison Road Picture House.
The Festival will screen a specially curated program of 23 feature films and shorts, showcasing the very best in contemporary Latin American cinema.
The Opening Night Fiesta will kick on after the film screening with an epic Brazilian fiesta at the ever-trendy Argyle in The Rocks. Here the high energy sounds of For All Band and the Sydney Choro Club will be pumping in between sets by DJ Willie Sabor. Jam-packed with live dancers, delectable bites, drinks and percussion, this is a night out not to miss!
Closing the festival is the heart-warming feature, Delfín. Eleven-year-old Delfín lives alone with his father in provincial Argentina. Over the course of a week the film captures Delfín’s daily routine of rising early to work, falling asleep in class and fending off the rent collector, until he discovers that a children’s orchestra is being formed in the neighbouring village. Thus begins a moving adventure for him and his father that by the end of the week has the capacity to change the course of their lives. Following the screening of Delfín there will be a closing night party at The Argyle.
