«It’s easier to see Latin cinema here than in Brazil»
Sunday, September 21st, 2014

The Brazilian producer Sara Silveira really loves everything about San Sebastián. The president of the Horizontes Latinos Jury has been coming here since 2004 when her film Cinema Aspirinas y Urubús was selected for Films In Progress and since then she’s seen it grow each year and her affection for the Festival and the city has grown with it.

She says that she prefers to watch films rather than to make them so that this is a golden opportunity to enjoy the selection of Latin films and to reflect on the work of each colleague. “Although you won’t believe this, it’s easier to see Latin cinema here than in Brazil, because although each country in Latin America has its own production industry, in Brazil you can almost never get to see what our neighbours are doing; at the very most an occasional Argentine film that has been a big hit at European festivals.”

She thinks that the Festival has significantly contributed to making her country’s films better known abroad by including Brazilian films in the Horizontes Latinos section. She recalls that this year it contains three films from her country and that last year it was also a Brazilian film, O lobo atrás da porta, that won the Horizontes Award.
