THE WHOLE EARTH OPENING WIDE
Note: The August 12 screening at 1:10 p.m. is SOLD OUT
This collection of 7 shorts has a lot of handsome men hunting for Mr. Right while storming the proverbial castle, but their stories have very different endings. Indonesia: In Pria, a teen living in rural Indonesia struggles between the traditions of his upbringing and his romantic idealization of the freedom of the west. Spain: The Marriage is about the most important day in the lives of Suso and Ricard: after several years in a relationship they’re going to get married. Both of their families are delighted. Well, not all: Adela, Suso’s grandmother, will be present at the dinner, but unaware that what’s being celebrated is her grandson’s wedding day. Australia: A doctor's tentative romance with the hospital's Arabic interpreter evolves into something deeper, but everything is not as it seems in You Deserve Everything. Mexico: In Starting Over, Mario and Lorena have the Alzheimer's cure, but before giving it to Lorena's brother, they have to consider the consequences due to past scars that cannot be cured. Australia: Nathan meets a drag queen who used to beat the crap out of him in their small hometown. Now she’s offering to give him a marvelous makeover in Picking Up. Germany: Homework is about a young father, his twelve year old daughter, one night club, two secrets and a lie that will solve everything. Spain: Tomás and Andrea are standing opposite at a zebra crossing in Madrid. Their eyes meet in the distance and they start smiling at each other. What they don’t know yet is that this fleeting encounter will mark their destiny in Por Un Beso.
