Now In Theaters: 'Hermano' and 'Neighboring Sounds'

It’s rare for a film in Spanish or Portuguese to make it to a U.S. theater. But this week is a big one for Latin American cinema. Two award-winning films opened theatrically this past Friday, Venezuelan soccer drama Hermano and Neighboring Sounds, a meditation on the divide between Brazil’s social classes. They both touch on the effects of violence in South America but handle the topic in completely different ways. It’s a testament to the flourishing Latin American film scene that these movies offer contrasting points of view and use a completely different set of aesthetics to tell their stories. They are both worth a look and may be playing at a theater near you.
