Chicago Latino Film Fest Week One / Flickering Empire at Iwan Ries


The 31st Chicago Latino Film Festival opens tomorrow night and it’s provided me with the occasion for a new blog post at Time Out Chicago. I have a brief review of Fellipe Barbosa’s first feature Casa Grande, or the Ballad of Poor Jean, a socially conscious Brazilian drama that I quite liked and am calling your best bet for the fest’s first week. Peep the review here:

Also, next Tuesday, April 14, the Cigar Society of Chicago will host Adam Selzer and me at the Lounge in Iwan Ries for a book talk/signing of Flickering Empire. Cocktails at 5:30, talk starts at 6. I’m really looking forward to enjoying a good cigar during our book talk this time! More info here:
