On Wednesday night, the 11th of April, Milwaukee's 2nd annual CineLatino Hispanic Film Festival gets underway. The kickoff event is at the Bistroplex at Southridge and the remainder of the festival takes place at the South Shore Cinema in Oak Creek.

 

We spoke with one of the festival's organizers, Nancy Hernandez and nationally acclaimed mural artist Mauricio Ramirez about the festival, and about the striking portrait of the late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo that Ramirez created for it.

 

The artwork, much increased in size, will also find a permanent home on the wall of the South Shore Cinema - Ramirez plans to be finished with it this weekend.
