The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will once again host the OLA Film Festival, presented by the Organizacion Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island this weekend.
The festival, now 10 years old, will open tomorrow at 5 p.m. with “Inocente,” a 40-minute film that won an Academy Award this year for best documentary. It is about a young homeless woman who wants to be an artist. Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine directed. After the screening, Mambo Loco will perform Afro-Cuban and Puerto Rican music.
On Saturday, “Tanta Agua,” a narrative film from Uruguay, will be screened at 3 p.m. It follows a father determined to have quality time with his children on an ill-fated and rainy resort vacation. The film was directed by Ana Guevara and Leticia Jorge.
Then on Sunday, the festival will conclude at 3 p.m. with the Chilean documentary “Salvador Allende.” Patricio Guzman’s film focuses on the U.S.-backed military overthrow of the socialist Chilean government. Allende was elected president in 1970 and deposed three years later by Augusto Pinochet. He committed suicide before being taken prisoner. In the dictatorship that followed, his followers were targets of repression, left in exile, or executed.
Tickets for each film cost $10 and are free for members, students, and children. The Mambo Loco performance is free with museum admission.
