Universal themes of guilt, crime and punishment pervade this tense and intelligent drama about a man whose humdrum life is turned upside down the day Celina, a woman he met in the violent years when he was a soldier with the Peruvian Army, jumps into his taxi. This unexpected re-encounter with a dark past prompts Harvey Magallanes to embark on a daring plan to help Celina, and to find his own redemption. ¡Viva! veterans may recognise Magaly Solier from La Teta asustada (¡Viva! 2010) and Madeinusa (¡Viva! 2007).
The screening on Wed 20 Apr will be introduced by Roy Stafford, freelance film educator.
