ABOUT: Our Music, More Than a Language

Wednesday´s Movie Night at Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston

In order to recognize the diversity of musical expressions in the region, the Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston presents Our Music, More Than a Language, a selection of 16 contemporary Latin American films.

The inspiration of this film series is the music. Through different cinematographic proposals, we invite the public to discover the diversity of rhythms and the existing cultural heritage of the region. Extensive geography and cultural diversity are unified through a single language: music.

The film series consists of 16 films grouped into four parts:

CREATIVE WOMEN: Selection of films that recognize outstanding female creators and musical performers.

TO DANCE: Selection of films that emphasize music and dance as an expression.

MUSIC WITH STORIES: Selection of films whose main axis is a biographical story linked to music.

ORIGINAL SOUNDS: Selection of documentaries whose central theme is the music or sound of the Native peoples of the Americas.

The screenings are completely free and open to the public.

The film series runs from March til November, 2020, and are shown the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month @7 p.m.


Each movie includes English subtitles and free popcorn.
