Latin American Studies Association Awards
At the upcoming Latin American Studies Association Conference (March 15-18 in Puerto Rico), both THE TAKE and JUSTICE (JUSTIÇA) will honored with an Award of Merit in Film.

JUSTICE (JUSTIÇA), which will have its U.S. Theatrical Premiere at Film Forum later this year, has won several international prizes, and offers an intimate look inside the Brazilian justice system.

THE TAKE ("Editor's Choice! "Highly Recommended! A genuine thriller in the Costa-Gavras vein." - Video Librarian) is the story of unemployed Argentinian workers taking over closed factories -- a story with universal implications.

Additionally, LA SIERRA, recently nominated a Best Documentary Award at the upcoming Independent Spirit Awards and selected for next month's prestigious Documentary Fortnight Series at the Museum of Modern Art, will screen at the LASA Conference Film Series.

Happy New Year! Fifteen New Releases for January 2006
We just added fifteen New Releases to our website. From a lively study of street art's role in urban culture to a multidisciplinary look at Japan's "Peace Constitution," and from a political history of Jacques-Louis David's paintings of Napoleon to a dramatic investigation of the recent history of the Mafia and its integral relationship to postwar Italian politics, this is one of the more eclectic and exciting groups of New Releases in our recent history.

Take a moment to browse our updated Home Page, our New Release Page, and note that we've added New Catalogs in PDF format, as well as two great filmmakers to our Filmmaker Index, Lisanne Skyler and Nurith Aviv.
