One of the world's most vital regions for film is showcased in
the Museum of Fine Arts series New Latin American Cinema.
It opens today with Brazilian directors Felipe Braganca and Marina Meliande's The Joy ( 2010 | 5:45 pm)
in which the ghost of a murdered youth seeks refuge with his teenaged cousin.
It screens along with Colombian director Oscar Ruiz Navia's Crab Trap (2009 | 8 pm), a
naturalistically shot story about a man who encounters a young girl in an
environmentally ravaged coastal town and is smitten by her innocence.
