‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ and Latino film culture: downSTAGE with The Frame

Monday, October 30, 2017, 7:30pm - 10:30pm
Samuel Goldwyn Theater, Beverly Hills 8949 Wilshire Boulevard Beverly Hills, CA 90212 Map and directions

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented “From Latin America to Hollywood: Latino Film Culture in Los Angeles, 1967–2017,” a series of film screenings, live conversations, oral histories, publications and a dedicated website exploring the shared influences of Latino and Latin American filmmakers and the work they created or presented in Los Angeles during the past half-century.  The screening series, which ran through January 18, 2018, is a part of the Academy’s participation in the Getty-led Southern California-wide arts initiative “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.” Guest-curated by Oscar-nominated documentarian Lourdes Portillo, the exhibition focuses on the social, cultural and political environment of the 1960s that sparked the Chicano and New Latin American cinema movements and extends to present day. 

On Monday, October 30, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences screened “Pan’s Labyrinth” at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. Following the film, KPCC’s John Horn hosted an onstage conversation with special guests as part of a live taping for The Frame.

“Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA” is a collaborative effort led by the Getty to explore Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. It involves over seventy arts organizations from around Southern California and will take place September 2017 through January 2018.

KPCC In Person’s “downSTAGE” talks take place with artists and special guests before, during or following a performance or gallery show. These conversations occur in front of a live audience and are recorded and distributed on KPCC.
