Peru, Drama, 2013
84 min, RED, Color
Spanish, Quechua with English subtitles

Three women of vastly differing ages and origins cope with life in three distinct regions of Peru. Eva, a young girl from the lush tropics of the Amazonian jungle, experiences a sexual awakening by way of a forbidden relationship with her uncle. Victoria, a wealthy socialite from Lima, suffers a terrible secret that renders her inner life as grey and melancholic as the city surrounding her. Zoraida, an elderly peasant from a destitute village in the Andean Mountains, confronts her worst fears in the wake of the unexpected return of her estranged son. Three unconnected regions, three introverted women, three stories of discovery shaped by three different geographies, societies and climates of the same fragmented country.

Los enemigos del dolor / The Enemies of Pain

A film by Arauco Hernández

This film was screened as a part of the 2015 Cine Las Americas International Film Festival (CLAIFF18)

 

Uruguay, Adventure/Comedy/Drama, 2014
82 min, HD 4k, Color
Spanish, German with English subtitles

A German actor comes to Montevideo looking for his wife. He is quite rude, speaks Spanish poorly, and has a talent for getting himself into trouble. A few hours after his arrival, he loses his way and runs into a group of young men who try to rob him. Pedro, an ex-addict in his forties, intervenes and helps him get away, giving him advice about how to get around. Along the way, the foreigner tells the story of his lost love to various strangers, and this is how he recruits Nelson, a laconic security guard whose wife has left him and who joins the German’s quest as if it were his own. Together, and united by suffering, they set out on a journey through the suburbs of Montevideo. This film is an adventure in vandalism with a shot of bittersweet humor.

El futuro / The Future

A film by Luis López Carrasco

This film was screened as a part of the 2015 Cine Las Americas International Film Festival (CLAIFF18)

 

Spain, Experimental/Music Drama, 2013
67 min, Digital, Color
Spanish with English subtitles

A group of young people dance and drink at a house; the atmosphere is festive and cheerful. The socialist victory in the 1982 general elections seems recent. The night is full of euphoria and celebration. The attempted coup of 1981 appears to be quite far away. In Spain in 1982, the future was everything. However, looking closer, the future is approaching at incredible speed, like a black hole devouring everything in its path.
