Latin Wave 10 film screening: La Salada
Thousands flock to Buenos Aires' La Salada, South America's largest market. This poignant debut explores the vibrant locale through the stories of new immigrants and sheds light on the diverse immigrant community. Mr. Kim (Chang Sun Kim) operates a clothing stand and lives with his daughter Yun Jin (Yun Seon Kim), who is unhappy about her father's selection of her future husband.
Mr. Kim befriends and hires Bruno (Limbert Ticona), an illegal immigrant from Bolivia. And lonely Huang (Ignacio Huang) sells pirated DVDs while spending his nights calling home to Taiwan.
Director Juán Martín Hsu, who will introduce the screening, depicts the immigrant experience with sensitivity, capturing the spirit of a fascinating subculture.
