ABOUT Our Music, More Than a Language
Wednesday´s Movie Night

In order to recognize the diversity of musical expressions in the region, the Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston presents Our Music, More Than a Language, a selection of 16 contemporary Latin American films.
The inspiration of this film series is the music. Through different cinematographic proposals, we invite the public to discover the diversity of rhythms and the existing cultural heritage of the region. Extensive geography and cultural diversity are unified through a single language: music.
The film series consists of 16 films grouped into four parts:

CREATIVE WOMEN: Selection of films that recognize outstanding female creators and musical performers.
TO DANCE: Selection of films that emphasize music and dance as an expression.
MUSIC WITH STORIES: Selection of films whose main axis is a biographical story linked to music.
ORIGINAL SOUNDS: Selection of documentaries whose central theme is the music or sound of the Native peoples of the Americas.

Usually, we encourage a public discussion after each film.

Those Who Come, Will Hear proposes a unique meeting with the speakers of several indigenous and Inuit languages of Quebec – all threatened with extinction. The film starts with the discovery of these unsung tongues through listening to the daily life of those who still speak them today. Buttressed by an exploration and creation of archives, the film allows us to better understand the musicality of these languages and reveals the cultural and human importance of these venerable oral traditions by nourishing a collective reflection on the consequences of their disappearance.

Los Que Vendrán, Lo Oirán
La película comienza con el descubrimiento de lenguas desconocidas al escuchar la vida cotidiana de aquellos que todavía las hablan en la actualidad. Afianzado
por una exploración y creación de archivos fílmicos que registran lenguas indígenas, la película nos permite comprender la musicalidad de estas lenguas y su importancia cultural, generando una reflexión colectiva sobre las consecuencias de su desaparición.
