The Latin American Season turns the spotlight on a variety of projects including October, directed by brothers Daniel and Diego Vega Vidal, which focuses on the life of Clemente after he finds a baby. October is a sharply witty Peruvian film which received the prestigious Special Jury Mention in Cannes 2010. Another festival favourite is Preludio. Consisting of one continuous, unbroken shot for its entirety, Preludio is a bot-meets-girl story wonderfully void of any cinematic clichés. Director Eduardo Lucatero will attend the screening.
Other titles include Nostalgia for the Light. Using the Atacama Desert as a departure point, Nostalgia for the Light, part-documentary, part-cinematic essay, concerns a captivating investigation. Abel, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, tells the story of a boy who decides to become the father figure of his family in Diego Luna’s debut. Paulo Trapero’s Carancho is about a personal injury lawyer caught up in a cycle of violence, coupled with an engrossing love story set amongst Argentinians.
Another anticipated debut screening at the festival is What I Love the Most directed by Delfina Castagino. What I Love the Most depicts two women in their 20’s pondering their friendship and lives. And screened to great success at last year’s Cannes Festival, The Silent House is a marvelously unique take on the horror genre, filmed in one single continuous shot.

Instituto Cervantes in Dublín has the pleasure to show the film “Deep Crimson” from director Arturo Ripstein and Paz Alicia Garciadiego (scriptwriter). They will present the film and after the screening, we will have the opportunity to chat with them.
From a true story that had already been taken to the screen –The Honeymoon Killers (1970), a B movie and Truffaut favorite- in the hands of Arturo Ripstein and relocated in Mexico, it has become his masterpiece and won him the international acclaim he long deserved.
The film merges a cruel world, humanized monsters and a black humor that shows up when least expected.
Arturo Ripstein, born in Mexico City in 1943, is the son of a well-known producer. He studied law, history and art history before plunging into a film career in 1962, as an assistant to Luis Buñuel.
In 1965, he directed his first feature, Tiempo de Morir, written by Carlos Fuentes and Gabriel García Márquez, it began a tradition of making independent films written by high-profile Latin-American authors.
In 1997, Ripstein won the National Prize of Arts and Sciences, the second filmmaker after Buñuel to do so.
Paz Alicia Garciadiego is the scriptwriter of many of his films.
