Tonight I’m off to celebrate Opening Night of the San Francisco International Film Festival. I’m super excited to start the evening off with the a screening of What Maisie Knew. There are, as usual, some intriguing films from Spain and Latin America that I want to check out in the coming weeks:
Mexico: After Lucia (Después de Lucía) is about a man and his teenage daughter who move to Mexico City after the death of his wife. When the daughter faces bullying, their relationship is tested.
Spain: The Artist and the Model (El artista y la modelo) is about a Spanish artist and his muse.
Colombia: La Sirga (The Tow-line) takes place in the high Andes, where a girl must leave her home due to a fire. She tries to establish roots alongside other shelter-seekers in a hostal at the edge of a mist-shrouded lagoon.
Happy movie watching, and if you have any movie suggestions please let me know!
