A revisit of Latin America’s political history accompanied by a great Latin American folk music repertoire – live music with meaning!
To mark the 12th Sydney Latin American Film Festival, SLAFF will host a fundraiser in support of the ongoing work of the organisation that has brought to Sydney the best of Latin America’s art, history and culture.
Join us for one of our much loved Cine Lounge sessions: a night of great films, music, drinks and food in the best company! We are presenting an enriching and enlightening evening with a screening of 2016 audience favourite Beyond My Grandfather Allende accompanied by a great Latin American folk music repertoire.

Come and experience the beauty and pain involved in the making of a revolution and immerse yourself in the history of Chile’s leader Salvador Allende. Experience first hand the power of art to comment and promote action against oppression.
