FILM: The 12th Annual Latino International Film Festival continues until Friday. The featured film tonight at the Mann #6 is Brazil's Mare, Nossa Historia de Amor (Another Love Story). Analídia is the daughter of a gang leader, and Jonatha is a childhood friend of the another. "Openly inspired by Romeo and Juliet, the film is a review of our strong sense of music, our contemporary dance as well as the strange mix we find in slums, where violence lives along side artistic possibility brought by social projects." There are also a number of other films on the schedule today, so check the full lineup.
