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.
