Birds of Passage

  • 2018
  • Colombia / Denmark / Mexico
  • 2h 5min
  • Directed by: Cristina Gallego, Ciro Guerra
  • Cast: Natalia Reyes, Carmiña Martínez, José Acosta

Rapayet (Acosta) is a member of Colombia’s indigenous Wayuu people who becomes a drug lord. Rich in texture and atmosphere, and with strong performances, it’s full of intimate and observational moments as it bears witness to the birth of the narcotics industry which has decimated Colombian culture.

Gloria Bell

Gloria Bell
  • 2018
  • Chile / US
  • 1h 42min
  • Directed by: Sebastián Lelio
  • Cast: Sean Astin, Julianne Moore, Alanna Ubach

Gloria (Moore) is a lovelorn independent woman in her 50s, seeking out new romance in the Los Angeles nightlife scene. Lelio, reworking his award-winning 2013 breakthrough, has an ideal lead in Moore but there are some strained touches; nevertheless, Moore gives one of her most sympathetic performances. Sensitive and rousing.
