Antonio is a middle-aged family man with traditional views and a high-ranking job title. He has lived firmly by the rules instilled within him by his parents and grandparents and has no intention of reevaluating his priorities until he is shaken to his core by an extreme situation. Antonio is forced to set aside his beliefs and his limited understanding of life, as he strives to follow his most primal of instincts.

Armando Bo’s thought-provoking and darkly comic thriller has been praised for the excellent performance of Guillermo Francella as Antonio, and the boldness of its screenplay.

EL ANGEL, FLORIDA PREMIERE
DIRECTED BY Luis Ortega
Country: Argentina, Spain
Language: Spanish
Subtitles: English
Original Title: El ángel
Running Time: 114min
Film Year: 2018
Category: Spotlight Series, Marimbas Award

Based on the true story of one of Argentina’s most infamous criminals, El Angel highlights the origins of Carlos Robledo Puch, the teenage baby-faced serial killer whose murder spree dominated national headlines in Argentina during the early 1970’s. What begins as a series of milder crimes for Carlos quickly escalates into a series of ruthless killings. Guided by his blonde curls and angelic demeanor, he manages to lure his victims one by one.

Ortega’s biopic is a visual feast that manages to blend Puch’s pathology and the spirit of his times, in a style that follows the director’s fascination with outlaws and the underground. The film saw its world premiere at this year’s Uncertain Regard Program at the Cannes Film Festival.

EVERYBODY KNOWS, FLORIDA PREMIERE
DIRECTED BY Asghar Farhadi
Country: France, Italy, Spain
Language: Spanish
Subtitles: English
Original Title: Todos lo saben
Running Time: 133min
Film Year: 2018
Category: Spotlight Series

Upon traveling back to her hometown near Madrid, Laura, a Spanish woman living in Buenos Aires, seems pleased to be reuniting with old friends and family members as they prepare for a wedding. However, the joyful ambiance quickly dissipates following the unexpected chain of events which includes the sudden disappearance of Laura’s daughter and the unveiling of some dark secrets. Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Asghar Farhadi, Everybody Knows marks his first time directing in Spain and working with real-life couple and giants of Spanish (and international) Cinema, Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, as well as the incredible Ricardo Darín.

Selected as the opening film of the Cannes Film Festival, this psychological thriller lives up to its suggestive title as a result of Farhadi’s masterful direction and an all-star cast who deliver superb performances.

PETRA, FLORIDA PREMIERE
DIRECTED BY Jaime Rosales
Country: Denmark, France, Spain
Language: Catalan, Spanish
Subtitles: English
Running Time: 107min
Film Year: 2018
Category: Spotlight Series, Marimbas Award

The identity of Petra’s father has been concealed from her all of her life. Following her mother’s death, Petra embarks on a quest which leads to Jaume, a celebrated artist and powerful, ruthless man. As she attempts to uncover the truth, Petra meets Marisa, Jaume’s wife, and their son Lucas. Gradually, these characters are driven to the edge as their stories intertwine in a spiral of malice, family secrets and violence. Fate’s cruel logic, however, is derailed by a twist that opens a pathway to hope and redemption.

Petra, Catalan director Jaime Rosales’ 6th feature film, presents Bárbara Lennie – who will be in attendance at our GEMS screening to receive the Precious Gem Award –  as its heroin in a tragic and impeccable performance. The film had its world premiere at the Director’s Fortnight during this year’s Cannes Film Festival to great reception from Rosales’ fans and critics alike.

HOPELESSLY DEVOUT, FLORIDA PREMIERE
DIRECTED BY Marta Díaz de Lope Díaz
Country: Spain
Language: Spanish
Subtitles: English
Original Title: Mi querida cofradía
Running Time: 90min
Film Year: 2018
Category: Discovery Series, Jordan Ressler First Feature Film Award

When Ignacio manages to secure a highly-respectable position at the local religious guild, Carmen, a devout Catholic woman who was confidently pursuing the same title, refuses to concede gracefully. Her scheme to overthrow him, however, ultimately leads to chain of hysterical and comically inconvenient events that often include an eccentric mix of characters.

Marta Diaz De Lope Diaz’s first feature film playfully challenges conventional norms in this screwball comedy where chaos ensues in every corner. Well-received at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival, Hopelessly Devout was presented with both an Audience Award and a Best Supporting Actress Award for Carmen Flores’ portrayal of Juana.
