Paseando a Miss Daisy

Take A Drive To Long Island's East End For The LI Latino International Film Festival

Governor Spitzer's decision to have the State issue drivers' licenses to undocumented immigrants couldn't have come a moment too soon.

Now, thousands of illegal Mexicans can join you, September 28 - 30, at the 2007 LONG ISLAND LATINO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (LILIFF), to be held at the
Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center 76 Main Street, Westhampton Beach, NY.

Doubtful there will be a dishwasher or a landscaper in town through next Sunday -- and it will be safe to once again sleep with the doors unlocked and the windows open, even for those who reside next to the nearest shape-up center.

Levity aside, LILIFF looks to be a memorable event, marking not only the great accomplishments of Latinos in film (and not just Jennifer Lopez), but also the significant contributions made by Latinos to the Long Island economy and Long Island life. [Including, of course, the advent of Taco Bell and the near-eradication of the English language!]

Of course, we jest. [Just don't let Peter King get hold of this blogpost.]

The Long Island Latino International Film Fesitval is not to be missed! [Our money is on A Garota/The Kid (Short/Animation/5min/Brazil/ 2006). Hey, isn't that Oh No, Mr. Bill from Saturday Night Live? Ah, that's Senor Bill, to you...]

What better way to mark Hispanic Heritage Month -- and the end of the Jewish High Holy Days -- than a Latino Film Festival right here on Long Island.

Cuba, Si. Castro, No!
