Bad Hair/ Pelo Malo  Dir. Mariana Rondón, Venezuela, 2013
Saturday, June 21, 1:30 PM Roxie Theater – Tickets:  http://bit.ly/BadHairFrameline

BadHair_FramelineYoung Junior’s obsessive quest for a luxuriant head of silky, straight hair threatens to compromise the already desperately pinched existence he shares with his unsympathetic mother and infant brother in Caracas. This powerful, disquieting story of longing and unrelenting hardship is sweetly balanced with discerning compassion and moments of simple tenderness.

Everybody’s Got Somebody… But Me/Todo Mundo Tiene A Alguien Menos Yo
Dir.Raul Fuentes, Mexico, 2012
Tuesday, June 24, 7:00 PM Roxie Theater – Tickets: http://bit.ly/EverybodyFrameline

EverybodysGotSomeoneButMeThe dynamics of a passionate love affair between a shy, snobbish middle-aged woman and a brazen, vivacious teenage girl change suddenly and artfully in Raúl Fuentes’s feature film debut, with a unique narrative style, seductive black-and-white cinematography, and an eclectic soundtrack.

 

Holiday/ Dia Feriado
Dir. Diego Araujo, Ecuador, 2013
Thursday, June 19, 10:00 PM &  Monday June 23, 1PM Castro Theatre – Tickets: http://bit.ly/HolidayFrameline

Holiday

Against the 1999 collapse of Ecuador’s banking system in the wake of a corruption scandal, doe-eyed, sensitive Juampi feels his own world turn upside down when he meets leather-clad Juano, an indigenous Quechua, during a holiday visit to the Andes.

all_about_the_feathersThe San Francisco International Film Festival returns April 24-May 8 and Cine+Mas San Francisco Latino Film Festival co-presents All About the Feathers. Neto Villalobos’s debut feature details the unconventional relationship between an impoverished security guard and the newly acquired fighting cock that he struggles to care for. Anchored by the stellar performances of a mostly non professional cast, this quixotic Costa Rican comedy is both slyly absurdist and quietly observational. Tickets available at festival.sffs.org.

Bad Hair at SF International Film Festival
May 1, 9:15 at Sundance Kabuki Cinema; May 4, 6:15 at New People Cinema; and May 7, 6:30 at BAM/PFA

Bad_HairThe San Francisco International Film Festival returns April 24-May 8 and Cine+Mas San Francisco Latino Film Festival co-presents Bad Hair. A 10-year-old boy’s desire to straighten his kinky hair causes outsized conflict with his unemployed, harassed single mother in Mariana Rondon’s Caracas-set drama. Unexpected issues related to Venezuela’s volatile economic situation and the young boy’s incipient homosexuality form the core of this finely acted, deceptively small-scaled story. Tickets available at festival.sffs.org.
