Party Celebrating Filmmaker Lourdes Portillo in NYC


Last Saturday Cinema Tropical in partnership with The Museum of Modern Art, Women Make Movies and the Flaherty Seminar threw a party at Hôtel Americano in Chelsea to celebrate filmmaker Lourdes Portillo and her film retrospective at MoMA.

The party was held after the screening of Portillo's The Devil Never Sleeps which was followed by a special conversation between the director and Mexican filmmaker Natalia Almada at the Museum. Several people from New York's film community as well as out-of-town Flaherty Seminar participants attended the party which was sponsored by Ketel One Vodka.
