The Int'l Latino Film Society Benefit Screening: Postales de Leningrado / Postcards from Leningrad
For La Nina, narrator of Postcards from Leningrad, being born into a socialist revolution in 1960s Venezuela wasn't easy. She and her cousin Teo have learned how to live a clandestine life, making an ongoing game out of survival, with everything from code names and creative disguises to turning themselves invisible and devising fantastic escape plans. Using their imaginations, they invent superhero revolutionaries and help their families survive the scariest realities of guerrilla warfare, including betrayal and death. A visual collage with playful animation and nostalgic footage of revolutionary zeal, the film injects both humor and pathos into a story where wild imaginations, memories, madness, white lies, and grief all mix seamlessly in a child's reality.

Nominated by Venezuela for the Oscars 2008, nominated by Venezuela for Goyas 2008 (Spanish Oscar), winner Best Film Biarritz Film Festival. Venezuela, 2007, 75 minutes. Film in Spanish with English subtitles

* Film followed by a post-screening discussion with the filmmakers, Director, Mariana Rondon and Producer, Marite Ugas. Reception with wine, food and entertainment to follow.*
