In Bar, El Chino, screening on Monday, Oct. 21, a young editor of a television network sets out to make a documentary on a legendary Argentine bar and tango destination. The festival concludes with Noel, Poeta de Vila, a biopic on the short yet accomplished career of Brazilian songwriter Noel Rosa, on Monday. Oct. 28. All films begin at 6 p.m. and include English subtitles and a post-screening discussion. Bar, El Chino will be followed by a tango party, and Noel, Poeta da Vila will be followed by samba dancing.
