first_imgBy Dialogo October 15, 2009 Fourteen films, thirteen from Latin America and one from Spain, are competing for the top prize at the XXIVth Latin American Film Festival in the Italian city of Trieste, where a prize will also be given for the first time to the work that best promotes coexistence among peoples. The fourteen productions that make up the list of films in competition at the Festival are among more than 160 films that will be shown from 24 October to 1 November at the event, which annually provides Latin America’s largest cinematic showcase in Europe, as its artistic director, Rodrigo Díaz, explained to EFE. “The Trieste Festival is back for another year to show Latin American works that will have their Italian, and in some cases European, premieres. The big new thing this year is the Falklands Prize for the film that best promotes coexistence among peoples and international law,” Díaz explained. This prize, instituted in collaboration with the Argentine Ministries of Justice and Culture and the Argentine Film Institute (INCAA), is the great novelty of a festival with a significant tradition already behind it and in which this time a Spanish film is participating in the official competition, “Hoy no se fía, mañana sí” [Forever Waiting], by Francisco Avizanda. The other competitors include the Argentine films “Homo viator,” by Miguel Mato, “Andrés no quiere dormir la siesta” [Andrés Doesn’t Want to Take a Nap], by Daniel Bustamante, “Días de mayo” [Days of May], by Gustavo Postiglione, and “Desplazamientos” [Displacements], by Pedro Stocki. The Bolivian film “Cementerio de los elefantes” [Elephant Cemetery], by Tonchy Antezana, the Brazilian film “E probido fumar” [No Smoking], by Anna Muylaert, the Chilean films “El regalo” [The Gift], by Cristián Galaz and Andrea Ugalde, and “Grado 3” [Grade 3], by Roberto Artiagotía, and the Colombian films “Nochebuena” [Christmas Eve], by Camila Loboguerrero, and “Yo soy otro” [Others], by Óscar Campo Hurtado, are also participating in the official section. The list is rounded out by the Mexican films “A través del silencio” [Through the Silence], by Marcel Sisniega, and “Morenita,” by Alan Jonsson Gavica, along with the Dominican film “Hermafrodita” [Hermaphrodite], by Albert Xavier, one of the films that will receive its European premiere in Trieste. Once the competition is over, all these titles, which will be judged by a jury including Spanish producer Jaime Boix and Brazilian Antonio Urano, among others, will be shown in theaters in Rome, Milan, Padua, and Verona. In addition to the official section, this year’s Trieste Latin American Film Festival will pay tribute to the Brazilian filmmaker of Italian origin Rogério Sganzerla (1946-2004) with a retrospective in which twelve of his works will be shown and with the posthumous award of the Oriundi Prize, which promotes the memory of Italian immigration in Latin America. More than seventy works, including full-length films and shorts, showing various aspects of Latin American culture, art, and society will be shown in the “Contemporary” section. The XXIVth Festival will also include a retrospective dedicated to the bicentennial of the beginning of the independence of the peoples of Latin America from Spain, which will be commemorated next year.last_img read more
