Mar blindadoShielded Sea

Gerard Uzcátegui

Venezuela, Drama/Fantasy, 201011 min, 35mm, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

A sentry box in a bank holds within its walls a man and his story. Inside that dark and reduced space, reality is wasted away by the surge of time. Layer by layer, new sensations, situations and visions are unveiled. The closer we get, the more we realize in truth how far away we are from discovering the contradictions of this man, held in the shadow of this shelter-turned-prison. Mar blindado premiered at Vancouver Latin American Film Festival.

La reina del pueblo The Queen of the People

Juan Andrés Bello

Venezuela, Documentary, 2010 65 min, DigiBeta, Color/Black & White Spanish with English subtitles

 

The first time Venezuelans went to vote, they did so in order to choose a beauty queen. In 1944, Caracas hosted the 7th Baseball Amateur World Series and the organizers decided the beauty queen of the event would be elected via popular vote. As the campaign begins, the country is divided into two factions. On one side, there are the supporters of Oly Clemente, the daughter of the President's secretary; on the other, those of Yolanda Leal, a school-teacher from a poor neighborhood in Caracas. The country was going through a transition to democracy and the newly formed political organizations understood this as a means to promote their ideas. It was an opportunity to test if the citizens were ready to choose who was going to govern.

Historia de un día The Story of a Day

Rosana Matecki

Venezuela, Documentary, 2009 89 min, DV, Color Spanish with English subtitles

 

Historia de un día begins by observing the peaceful life of farmers living in a rural area in Latin America. Day breaks. A woman touches her eyebrows. A man shaves. Chickens are set loose and goats are fed. Little or nothing is said but the soundtrack gradually evolves into a rich, subtle combination of background noise and added sounds. This observation takes on a more contemplative mood, when attention is focused on the other subjects of the film.
