“100% Venezuela” - a film festival that showcases what has been a relatively unknown cinema outside of this country’s South American borders - returns to New York University’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center (located at 53 Washington Square South) for the second year in a row from April 23 through April. 27. The screenings and accompanying symposia are free and open to the public. For schedule times and details, visit: www.nyu.edu/kjc/100_Venezuela; or call 212.998.3650.

The film festival will screen films from the 1970’s, 1980’s, and 1990’s, in addition to some of the most recent productions from this troubled OPEC nation, focusing on politics, from diverse angles and points of view. Noteworthy screenings include: Postcards from Leningrad (2007), Venezuela’s official Oscar entry; the blockbuster successes Secuestro Express (2005) and Francisco de Miranda (2006); two films considered to the most important films of all time, The Smoking Fish (1978) and Chronicle of a Subversive Latin American (1975); and the internationally awarded films, Oriana (1985) and Nude with Oranges (1997).

Along with film screenings, “100% Venezuela” will host four interdisciplinary symposia that will bring to New York City renowned politicians, scholars, artists, and critics, including filmmakers Mauricio Walerstein and Mariana Rondón and former presidential candidate Teodoro Petkoff. Topics will include: “Leadership and Perspectives of the Bolivarian Venezuela” (4/23 at 7:15 p.m.); “Film & Politics” (4/24 at 7:15 p.m.); “Politics of the Pose from the Venezuelan Entre Siècle” (4/25 at 7:15 p.m.); and “Politics of Representation: Armando Reverón” (4/26 at 6:15 p.m.).
