London/UK News: Third Argentine Film Festival in London 27th to 30th November 2014
We have been spoiled with a myriad of Latin American film choices to see during November 2014 in London and here comes another opportunity not to be missed.
The third Argentine Film Festival in London, at the Ritzy and Hackney Picturehouse, kicks off on 27 November, runs until 30 November 2014 … and it is selling out fast. In fact, the opening film Damian Szifron’s Wild Tales, Relatos salvajes, has now sold out. So, hurry up!
The festival is intended to bring much needed Latin American sunshine to our cold and chilly autumn and more importantly grants an opportunity for students of Spanish and lovers of all things “Latin” to immerse themselves in the culture, humour and particularly the flavour of Latin American cinema.
Do thrillers, comedies, uplifting and challenging stories sound of interest to you? Here are just some of the standout attractions, in a nutshell:
The movies includes ‘Death in Buenos Aries’ by Natalia Meta bringing to life a high-voltage thriller set against a backdrop of the 1980s; the animated comedy ‘Metegol’ by the Oscar winning Juan Jose Campanella perfectly capturing the national obsession with football; ‘Living Stars’ by Mariano Cohn and Gaston Duprat is a film in which real people dance at home or in their gardens to a single song, providing a truly uplifting experience; and Thomas Dirnhofer’s ‘Cerro Torre’ which follows David Lama’s terrifying free-climb of the infamous granite needle Cerro Torre.
