Hispanic films featured at Nashville Film Festival April 17-20

The Nashville City Paper reports that the 36th Annual Film Festival will run April 14-21 at the Green Hills Cinema.

There are three Hispanic-themed films, scheduled as follows:

Robbing Peter (Feature) April 17th 7:15 pm - A reception sponsored by La Noticia Newspaper starts at 5:30 pm and is free and open to the public.
(Mario de la Vega, USA) A refreshingly original style, deadpan sense of humor and quiet absurdity form this tale of a Mexican out-of-work engineer who agrees to escort an illegal shipment across the border. (screening also on Tuesday, April 19th at 2:15 pm)

House of the Tiger King (Documentary) April 19th 9:35 pm & April 20th 12:00 pm
(David Flamholc, Sweden) A sometimes hilarious story of insane adventure when an eccentric British explorer Tahir Shah searches the jungles of Peru for a lost city of gold.

Give Me Your Hand (Dame La Mano) (Documentary) April 20th 9:15 pm
(Heddy Honigmann, Netherlands) A rousing look at Cuban exiles in New Jersey and the Bronx and their devotion to the rumba - their one connection to their homeland.

"Prices vary per film from $5 to $8 and are available at or by calling (800) 965-4827. An early-bird all-festival laminate that includes access to all films, panels, workshops (excluding the kids workshop), opening and closing galas and a VIP goodie bag may be purchased for $300 or $350 by calling 742-2500."
