    DE LO MIO (Diana Peralta 2019) - PREVIEW

    This new debut feature focuses on the NYC Dominican community thorough two young female siblings revisiting their family origins in its Caribbean island home, adjoining Haiti.

    The full review will come later in the month. It debuts at the 2019 BAMcinematek Festival as the Closing Night film Sat., June 22. Here is their blurb:
    Sibling bonds are both rekindled and tested in the achingly alive feature debut from Diana Peralta. Rita (Sasha Merci) and Carolina (Darlene Demorizi), two high-spirited sisters raised in New York, travel to the Dominican Republic to reunite with their estranged brother Dante (Héctor Aníbal) and to clean out their grandparents’ old home before it is sold and knocked down. As they rifle through the remnants of their family’s legacy, shared joys, pains, and traumas resurface that they must confront once and for all. Sensitively attuned to the intricacies of sibling relationships—from the playful teasing to the way a favorite childhood song can trigger an impromptu dance party—De Lo Mio is a richly human look at cherishing the past while learning to let go.
    (Note: Despite its warm tropical settings and attractive cast, this film's runtime seemed just too uneventful and unsubtle to seem worth a full review, after all.)
