I'm Going to Explode Voy a explotar


The 20th annual AFI Latin American Film Festival, which runs from Sept. 23 to Oct. 12 at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, Md., will kick off with the Mexican feature, “I’m Going to Explode” (Voy a explotar), directed by Gerardo Naranjo.

The fest, showing films from Spain and Portugal as well as Latin America, will screen more than 30 films.

The Brazilian/US co-production “Beyond Ipanema: Brazilian Waves in Global Music” (Beyond Ipanema: Ondas brasileiras na musica global), which had its world premiere in July at MoMA’s annual Premiere Brazil! will be the Centerpiece Presentation, screening on Oct. 2.

The fest’s Closing Night film on Oct. 9 is Berlin Panorama selection “Just Walking” (Solo quiero caminar), a co-production of Spain and Mexico.

There will be a free community screening of selected episodes from “Latin Music USA,” a four-part miniseries set to air on PBS later this fall on Sept. 27.
