IFF - Gueros
(Mexico, Alonso Ruizpalacios, 2014, 106 mins)
Troublemaker Tomás is sent away to live with his older brother, Sombra, who is studying in Mexico City. Arriving in the midst of a student strike that has shut down the university, he finds his slacker brother with his roommate Santos aimless with nothing to do, until Tomás decides they should travel around the city in search of his hero, their late father's favorite folk-rock singer Epigmenio Cruz.
Compelling, poignant, sometimes funny stories, both true and fiction, from around the world are screened at the International Film Festival in Trenton, New Jersey. Experience some of the most exquisitely beautiful and thought-provoking film that we screen! In 2015, a theme of cross-cultural encounters or collisions runs through many of the films, from IN THE CROSSWIND, an Estonian film which chronicles mass deportation under the Soviet's to the sometimes poignant, sometimes comic interaction between Australian caucasion and aboriginal culture in CHARLIE'S COUNTRY.
