New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) of eight new Spanish and Portuguese-language films representing collaborations among filmmakers from 10 different countries. "Iberoamérica: Our Way(s)" is presented from November 5 through 13 in The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters, and includes films that were made between 2007, the year of MoMA’s first Ibermedia series, and 2009. Opening the exhibition on November 5 is the world premiere of Qué culpa tiene el tomate? ("From the Land to Your Table," 2009), a collaboration among seven directors from seven countries. The film examines, with particularly stunning cinematography, the conditions and cultural diversity of the growing of produce, and its road to markets throughout Iberoamérica. There are seven segments in the film, each of which retains a unique style and tone, while leading the viewer through diverse economic systems and life stories.
