GRULAC Film Festival -A fiesta of Latin American and Caribbean cultures

From 6 to 9 October the Open Windows Institute welcomed the Latin American and Caribbean Cultures through the exhibition of movies from Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Mexico, Suriname, Panama, Venezuela, Brazil, Jamaica and Peru, as part of the GRULAC film Festival.

At the opening ceremony, a group of Latin American and Caribbean kids delighted the public with the interpretation of Ode to Joy directed by the Cuban Musician Wilmia Verrier and accompanied on the violin by Ambassador Roseval from Suriname who is also the GRULAC Dean.

During his opening speech Ambassador Roseval highlighted the relevance of this Festival as way to share the values and diversity of Latin American and Caribbean cultures with the people of South Africa.

Ambassador Roseval thanked the institutions, embassies and people who contributed to the festival, but especially to the children and their professor, Ms. Verrier.

Each day was also an opportunity to taste typical food and beverages from the different participating countries.

The festival embraced a diverse and wide public. Students and professionals, young and elderly, mainly South Africans, applauded the initiative. They learnt more about Latin American and Caribbean history, laughed at the comedies and recognized some of the challenges shared by the different countries, thanks to the films.
