Focusing on a trio of Cuban defectors who live and train together in Costa Rica as they try to land a lucrative contract in the U.S., the film portrays just how high the stakes are for athletes who are betting not only their careers, but also their livelihood and that of their families back home, on a future that’s far from a guaranteed home run.

Just 70 miles north of the Mexican-US border is a land haunted by ghosts. Brooks County, Texas is a barren landscape designed as a deterrent to illegal crossings, but people continue to attempt to cross, and many die trying. The municipality lacks the resources to properly deal with this sad reality, and the numbers keep rising. Multiple locals proffer contrasting opinions as two families search for their loved ones, and the toll of an unsustainable immigration policy is laid bare.

Watch Missing in Brooks County, directed by #LisaMolomot and #JeffBemiss at DOC NYC until November 19.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Director/Producer Lisa Molomot, subjects Omar Roman-Gomez and Dr. Kate Spradley immediately following the film.

Venezuela’s recent political upheavals are made vivid in A La Calle—meaning “to the street.” Covering multiple perspectives in the tradition of epic documentaries such as The Square or Winter on Fire, the film captures history unfolding over several years. Filmmakers Maxx Caicedo and Nelson G. Navarrete—Venezuelan himself—gain close access to Leopoldo López, whose arrest and imprisonment inspires a national movement against the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro. This vital chronicle not only helps us understand Venezuela, it also exemplifies a spirit of resistance against corruption that is universally inspiring.

An intimate and lyrical portrait of trauma, resilience, and resistance in Puerto Rico at a time when economic, political, and ecological forces post-Hurricane María have created a breeding ground for new predatory colonial practices.

The stunning island of Hispaniola is shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti, countries with a complicated history and tense relations. In 2013, the DR’s Supreme Court retroactively stripped the citizenship of residents of Haitian descent, leaving more than 200,000 people stateless, subject to immediate deportation, and devastating loss. In the midst of staggering intolerance, attorney Rosa Iris fights to protect the rights of these disenfranchised people while leading a grassroots campaign for a better future.

Things We Dare Not Do

Filmmaker Bruno Santamaría crafts an exquisite, ephemeral profile of a Mexican teenager on the cusp of adulthood. In the humble coastal village of El Roblito, Ñoño’s family and community live a seemingly idyllic existence. Ñoño spends time staging dance productions with local kids, but, when able to find time alone, travels to a secret place to dress as a woman. When violence disrupts El Roblito, Ñoño must decide if he will follow his dreams or remain with his conservative, loving family. This achingly beautiful film showcases the quiet and powerful acts of bravery in everyday life.

Things We Dare Not Do, directed by Bruno Santamaría will start playing virtually at DOC NYC on November 11.

Of interest in NY | TODAY! LatinReel presents the film screening of Queen of Lapa, 2019 Directed by Theodore Collatos and Carolina Monnerat, Brazil. 73 mins.In Portuguese with English subtitles. “A very human and very sincere film.” — Festival de Cannes Against the backdrop of political corruption and flagrant transphobia in Brazil, the late, great Luana Muniz—cabaret performer, activist, and s*x worker since age 11—minced no words about the challenges in calling Lapa, Rio de Janeiro home. In her hostel, she provided a rare safe haven and a heavy dose of tough love for the next generation of trans s*x workers.

Along with profiling an unsung heroine, this fly-on-the-wall verité documentary humbly listens, sans judgment, to frank discussions of transfemme triumph and tragedy in Lapa’s streets.
