This year’s Long Island Latino International Film Festival–or LILIFF–was held at the Wang Center on November 6, 7 and 8. The festival was full of interesting, independent films that included short movies, documentaries, comedies and dramas from all around the world. Some examples are:
– “A Class Apart” by Carlos Sandoval: A documentary regarding the struggle and civil rights history of Mexican-American made by the director of “Farmingville”
– “Taught to Hate” by James Garcia Sotomayor: The story of a Hispanic immigrant trying to find a job in America and an American family who’s uncle’s racial intolerance has a strong effect on his nephew. Inspired by the murder of Marcelo Lucero, in Patchogue Long Island.
– “Stereo Typed” by Frances Lozada Gonzalez: Stereotypes surrounding actors/actresses in the entertainment industry. Produced by Frankie G.
-“TrashDay” by Sam Lerma: A 3 min. short film based on a real-life Craigslist ad that tells the story of a woman longing for the affections of her trash man.
