Some friendships can change your life overnight.CHRISTMAS (NAVIDAD)
Ursula Budnik 2009 104min Feature CHILE Spanish/English
Some friendships can change your life overnight.
Two troubled teenagers break into a vacant house on the outskirts of Santiago on Christmas Eve. The young lovers - upbeat Aurora and angst-ridden Ale - have reached an impasse in their blossoming romance. When an unexpected guest, the enigmatic Alicia appears, the young lovers are instantly entranced. What unfolds is a night of initiation, shared intimacies and loss of innocence which will change their lives forever. Evocative mise-en-scne, and strong performances from the beautiful young cast drive this sensitive ﬁlm about those ﬁrst tentative steps into adulthood.
Screens with Colchones (Uruguay 14mins).
