GLOBAL LENS FILM FESTIVAL
6:30: El Premio (Argentina)
Under the cloud of a military dictatorship, a young mother and her daughter flee Buenos Aires for the seclusion of a ramshackle cottage along the windy dunes of an Argentine beach. As her mother listens for news from the radio with sad stoicism, restlessly curious seven-year-old Cecilia joins a nearby school overseen by a kindly teacher. A childhood idyll, however, soon becomes contaminated by the general political crisis, as the teacher recruits the class for a patriotic essay contest sponsored by the army—the very people that may have already disappeared Cecilia’s father—in this superbly acted and engrossingly atmospheric drama about innocence in illicit times.
(Global Lens is a series of 10 critically acclaimed contemporary feature films from Colombia, Argentina, Iran, Morocco, Brazil, Rwanda, Albania, Iraq and Turkey that Cinematheque, the University of Puerto Rico - Mayagüez film association, together with the Puerto Rico Film Society, our partners in San Juan, are bringing to our campus.
