During the last film of the Hispanic Heritage Film Fest the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System was honored by the visit of a special guest! Miguel Aleman Urteaga, Consul General of Peru was in attendance and was accompanied by Carlos Castillo Morales, who is the Appointed Consul of Peru here in Atlanta.
This is the second time that Carlos Castillo Morales has taken active participation in the Hispanic Heritage Film Fest, which is held at Central Library each year during Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 to Oct. 15). Last year he sponsored two films, Soy Andina and Undertow. This year, not only did he bring another film La Prueba, he also invited his boss Mr. Aleman Urteaga to come to present the movie. Mr Castillo is also letting other consuls know of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library’s Hispanic Heritage Film Fest and encouraging them to participate. That is why in early September Jose A. Flores Velasco from the Argentinian consulate in Atlanta came to the library to offer his help.
This year’s film festival offered the following films: Blanca Nieves (Spain), Chico y Rita (Cuba), Machuca (Argentina), Nine Queens (Argentina) and LaPrueba (Peru). If you missed them, you can check them out at the library and be sure to watch for 2015’s Hispanic Heritage Film Festival!
