Madre

About

Two years after his stunning, adrenaline-pumping short film “Madre” won the top prize for Short Films at the Miami Film Festival and went on to an Academy Award nomination, Rodrigo Sorogoyen has returned with a feature film that asks: what could possibly come next, after the shocking conclusion of his short film?

In the feature film, 10 years have gone by since Elena’s six-year old son has disappeared. The last thing she heard of him was a phone call he gave her, saying that he was lost on a beach in France and couldn't find his father. Nowadays, Elena lives on this same beach and manages a restaurant. She is finally beginning to emerge from this tragic episode when she meets a French teenager who strongly reminds her of her lost son. The two of them will embark on a relationship which will sow chaos and distrust around them.

This screening is sponsored by FlixLatino, ViendoMovies Available with Xfinity and TV5Monde.
