Movie Starts at 7:15 pm

Chela and Chiquita, from wealthy old Asuncion families, have had a close friendship for 30 years.  When Chiquita faces a prison sentence for fraud and Chela reduced circumstances in a stripped mansion, they are both forced to reinvent their everyday lives, identities and relationship. For Chela that means becoming an unintentional paid driver of a surprising set of new acquaintances in her ancient Mercedes. Ana Brun as Chela and Margarita Irun as Chiquita star in a quiet strong suspenseful tale reminiscent of a fairytale. Shadows and silence in stripped splendour and the contrast with strident modernity on the roads are reminders of the power of filmic storytelling to highlight class and suggest desire. A recalcitrant housemaid and a mysterious passenger complete a remarkable team under director Marcelo Martinessi.
