Caracas Love Unto Death

(Caracas amor a muerte)
Wednesday Oct. 22, 2008. 7:00 p

2000. PG-13. 91 mins. Spanish w/ English subtitles.Twin worlds collide in this tale of teenage trauma, survival in the slums and desperate choices. Ramón runs from the police and local gangsters. Aixa is pregnant and homeless, trapped between the priest and the doctor who fight over whether she should keep her baby. The film is set against the grim expressionism of bleak corridors and staircases that imprison tenement residents living on the edge of Caracas’ vast sprawl. Gustavo Balza’s debut film is a visceral experience from the opening brutal police killing to the touching ending.

2007. PG-13. 105 mins. Spanish w/ English subtitles.Aldo is in complete control of his life and surroundings, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Andrea has long since thrown caution to the wind, having travelled the world for fifteen years. Now Andrea is pregnant, and she’s not even sure she can identify the father of her unborn son. On the surface it would seem almost impossible to love a man as rigid as Aldo or a woman as unpredictable as Andrea, but as fate would have it their eccentricities might just fit together like pieces of a puzzle.

Behind The Sun

(Abril Despedaçado)
Wednesday Oct. 29, 2008. 7:00 p.

2001. PG-13. 105 mins. Portuguese w/ English subtitles. The badlands of Northeast Brazil, 1910. Twenty-year-old Tonio is the middle son of an impoverished farm family, the Breves. He is next in line to kill and then die in an ongoing blood feud with a neighbouring clan, the Ferreiras. For generations, the two families have quarrelled over land. Now they are locked into a series of tit-for-tat assassinations of their sons; an eye-for-an-eye, a tooth-for-a-tooth. Embedded in this choreography of death is a particular code of ethics: “Blood has the same volume for everyone. You have no right to take more blood than was taken from you.” Life is suffused with a sense of futility and stoic despair.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But just imagine if you added some great
    images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images
