Inspired by real events, this immersive virtual-reality experience, which mixes both game engine and live-action video, transports the viewer into the family's makeshift basement shelter.

    Giant had its world premiere at 2016 Sundance Film Festival New Frontier, and its European premiere at Cannes Film Festival where it garnered strong emotional responses from both the general public and the press.

    Omar G. Encarnación, Professor of Political Studies, Bard College

    Known around the world as a bastion of Catholicism and machismo, Latin America has emerged in recent years as the undisputed gay rights leader of the Global South. Even more surprising is that several Latin American nations have surpassed many developed nations, including the United States, in legislating equality for the LGBT community. So how did this dramatic and unexpected expansion of gay rights come about? And why are Latin American nations diverging in their embrace of gay rights, a point highlighted by the paradoxical experiences of Argentina and Brazil?
