The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival is undertaking a three-day celebration of Spanish cinema and cuisine. On Friday, the "opening night fiesta" starts at 6 p.m. with A Boyfriend for My Wife, an Argentine rom-com about a man who hires a womanizer to seduce his wife. At 7:30 p.m., there's a delicious buffet of South American food.
Saturday begins with tapas at 3 p.m., two screenings, and a "dulce fiesta" at 7:30 p.m. with flan, tres leches, and more. La Mujer de Mi Hermano plays at 8 p.m., and it's about a woman who revives her love life by fucking her husband's brother.
Sunday kicks off with a Zumba class at 10 a.m.. Then it's Yo Tambien, a film about a man with Down's dating a neurotic coworker; The Milk of Sorrow, a haunting, Academy Award-nominated film about a disease transmitted through breast milk in Peru's civil war; and Habana Eva, which imagines Castro's retirement. It wraps up at 6:30 p.m. with a "taco fiesta" and live music with some Latin American saxophone and flute players.
