Commemorating the 20th anniversary of Cinema Tropical, the leading presenter of contemporary Latin American filmmaking in the United States, MoMA presents 20 debut feature films by key Latin American writer-directors whose careers Cinema Tropical has helped champion over the past two decades—films that have never before enjoyed theatrical runs in New York, by now-celebrated artists like Lisandro Alonso (Argentina), Nicolás Pereda (Mexico), Sebastián Silva (Chile), and Dominga Sotomayor (Chile). The exhibition opens with a special Sculpture Garden screening of Matías Piñeiro’s The Stolen Man.

Organized by Carlos A. Gutiérrez, Executive Director, Cinema Tropical, and Joshua Siegel, Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art.
