Best of Venice Film Festival

(Golden Lion – Best Film)

FROM AFAR

(Desde allá)

Directed by LORENZO VIGAS/Venezuela/Mexico/2016/93mins.

With Alfredo Castro, Luis Silva, Jericó Montilla


Winner of the Golden Lion (“Best Film”) Award at Venice Film Festival. Wealthy, middle-aged Armando (Alfredo Castro, No, The Club, Neruda) lures young men to his home with money. He doesn’t want to touch, only watch from a strict distance. Armando’s first encounter with street thug Elder (newcomer Luis Silva) is violent, but this doesn’t discourage the lonely man’s fascination with the tough handsome teenager. Financial interest keeps Elder visiting him regularly and an unexpected intimacy emerges. However, Armando’s haunted past looms large, and Elder commits the ultimate act of affection on Armando’s behalf.

(In Spanish with English subtitles)

“A TIGHTLY COLIED, BEAUTIFULLY ACTED RELATIONSHIP STUDY that occasionally swerves in the direction of a gangland thriller…AN ACCOMPLISHMENT THAT IMMEDIATELY ANNOUNCED VIGAS AS AN EXCITING NEW VOICE IN LATIN AMERICAN CINEMA.“-Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
