Top 10 Latin American and Spanish Films

by Tony Arreaza, Cultural Events Director

Some people think I have the coolest job in the world. Well, I do. I’m the Cultural Events Director for the Latin American Coalition and my day-to-day responsibilities include discovering new music, mingling with world-renowned artists, organizing unforgettable events, and doing it all for an incredible cause- promoting equal opportunity and access for all of Charlotte’s residents.

Over the last few years, I have been working on developing an event that showcases and celebrates Latin American and Spanish films in Charlotte. This has been a long process and thanks to the incredibly hardworking team at La Coalición, I am delighted to announce that in March we will be launching CineMás: A Latino Film Series.

To celebrate, here are my top ten favorite Latin American and Spanish films:

Amores Perros (México, 2000)


Central do Brasil (Brazil, 1998)


Diario de Motocicleta (México, 2003)


El Hijo de la Novia (Argentina, 2001)


El Laberinto del Fauno (Spain/ México, 2006)


El Orfanato (Spain, 2007)


Hable con Ella (Spain, 2002)


Hermano (Venezuela, 2010)


Machuca (Chile, 2004)


Y Tu Mama También (México, 2001)


If you haven’t seen these films, I definitely suggest that you check them out. And stay tuned for CineMás in March.
