Landfall presented by Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020
November 15, 2020 @ 3:45 pm – November 16, 2020 @ 3:45 pm
For the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020, Houston Cinema Arts Society features virtual and drive-in screenings of films in addition to live stream performances, interactive experiences, and Q&A and panels. This year, HCAF celebrates “Urbana,” inspired by the globally popular Spanish-language genre música Urbana, which has its origin in African and the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
As a part of the Urbana section for the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020 (Nov 12 – Nov 22), Landfall will be available on the virtual platform a day from Nov 15, 3:45 PM. Directed by Cecilia Aldarondo, the documentary looks at everyday life in post-Hurricane María Puerto Rico through the kaleidoscopic lens. Giving voices to various people who cope with or address the hardship in numerous ways, Landfall offers a cautionary tale for our times.
