Wednesday 20 May, 6-9pm, Room B04, 43 Gordon Square

Señoritas (Lina Rodríguez / Colombia / 2013 / 87min.)

The picture goes up in flames when the girl performing at Señoritas walks on the screen. A certain fragility of the everyday is broken…

Mambo Cool (Chris Gude / Colombia / 2013 / 62min.)

We are in a land of images and ‘exile’ where swing and flavour are well known. Something drowns at the same time that flashes like lightning – and emerges as a source of life.
