BETWEEN US
AQUI ENTRE NOS
2011, La Banda Films/Cuevano Films, 95 min, Mexico, Dir: Patricia Martinez de Velasco

Rodolfo Guerra (Jesus Ochoa) is tired of being treated solely as the family breadwinner by his wife (Carmen Beato) and their three daughters, so he decides to spend some time away from work – and one day is all it takes to realize he is a stranger in his own home. As Rodolfo begins to pick away at the dishonesty (some of it his own) running through his middle-class family, the truth has unexpected consequences. This finely tuned comedy boasts several superb performances, and Ochoa won the Best Actor Award at the 2011 Guadalajara Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.


THE CINEMA HOLD-UP
ASALTO AL CINE
2011, Ciudad Cinema, 124 min, Mexico, Dir: Iria Gomez Concheiro

A motley crew of four teenage stoners decide to rob the local multiplex, with instantly recognizable adolescent listlessness as their main motivation. Writer-director Iria Gomez Concheiro keeps the youngsters’ rapport flowing and believable as she follows the gang on their seemingly typical journey of run-ins with cops, relentless weed-smoking and casual banter, until the ante ratchets up with pleasant freshness to the goal of the day: the heist. Winner of the Best First Fiction award at the Guadalajara International Film Festival and nominated for the World Cinema award at Sundance 2011. "Announces debut director-writer Iria Gomez Concheiro as a talent worth tracking." - Variety. In Spanish with English subtitles.
