“Matías Piñeiro is one of contemporary Argentine cinema’s most sensuous and sophisticated new voices. In Viola, he ingeniously fashions out of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night a seductive roundelay among young actors and lovers in present-day Buenos Aires. Mixing melodrama with sentimental comedy, philosophical conundrum with matters of the heart, Viola bears all the signature traits of a Piñeiro film: serpentine camera movements, an elliptical narrative, and a playful confusion of reality and artifice.” -New Directors, New Films (2012, 65 min, digital).

Presentation of Mexican Film “Post Tenebras Lux” May 29 -June 2

Cine+Mas SF is proud to be co-presenting this film with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

The new film by maverick Mexican filmmaker Carlos Reygadas is his most personal and challenging work to date. Post Tenebras Lux (“After darkness, light” in Latin) is a disorienting, kaleidoscopic, and visually stunning vision of a family torn between compassion and violence. It completely divided audiences at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where Reygadas was awarded Best Director. (2012, 120 min, DCP)

El Velador at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Nov 1&4

El Velador
Thu, Nov 1, 7:30pm & Sun, Nov 4, 2:00pm / Yerba Buena Garden Center for the Arts
By Natalia Almada

A film about violence with no violence. From dusk to dawn, El Velador accompanies Martin, the guardian angel who, night after night, watches over the extravagant mausoleums of some of Mexico’s most notorious drug lords. In the labyrinth of the cemetery, this extraordinary new documentary reminds us how, in the turmoil of Mexico’s bloodiest conflict since the Revolution, ordinary life persists and quietly defies the dead. (2011, 72 min, digital) For tickets visit http://www.ybca.org/el-velador
