The Lips [Documentary in Bloom]
A hit from the Cannes Film Festival, the three lead performances in the remarkable demi-documentary 'The Lips,' directed by Ivan Fund and Santiago Loza, all shared the festival's Best Actress Award. This June at Maysles Cinema, 'Documentary in Bloom: New Films presented by Livia Bloom' releases 'The Lips' in a week-long theatrical run. This clear-eyed, unsentimental film recounts the story of Noe, Luchi and Coca, who move to a destitute rural Argetine community where they survey the locals, bear witness to nearly unimaginable poverty, and every so slowly, begin to open up to one another.  
(June 13-19 at 7:30pm)

Co-presented by Cinema Tropical

Film Description:
The Lips
Dir. Ivan Fund and Santiago Loza, 2010, 100 min.
Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress, a prize shared by the film's three leads, this subtle and challenging mix of documentary and narrative filmmaking follows three women who deeply inhabit their cinematic roles as social workers interacting with members of an impoverished rural Argentine community. Facing desperate poverty that threatens to overwhelm even the greatest reserves of calm, humor, and empathy, the trio moves into makeshift living quarters and records data on the needs of the community, while still taking time for an occasional night out.

Film curator Livia Bloom's series "Documentary in Bloom" is a monthly and bi-monthly program highlighting challenging, controversial, and though-provoking new documentary films of outstanding artistic merit. The series offers a unique opportunity for audience members to discuss the films with each other and with the films' creators in a community setting.
