OaxacaCine is celebrating its 3rd anniversary this November with a series of films selected by special guest programmer Roger Koza. Featuring a total of seven films from Mexico, Russia, Australia and Portugal, the season will commence on Saturday, November 22 and run for one week.
We’re very excited to see the inclusion of the Australian film ‘Charlie’s Country’ starring David Gulpilil and directed by Rolf de Heer.
“Blackfella Charlie is getting older, and he’s out of sorts. The Government Intervention is making life more difficult on his remote community, what with the proper policing of whitefella laws that don’t generally make much sense, and Charlie’s kin and ken seeming more interested in going along with things than doing anything about it. So Charlie takes off, to live the old way, but in so doing, sets off a chain of events in his life that has him return to his community chastened, and somewhat the wiser.” (Vertigo Films)
The season will close with ‘Carmín Tropical‘. Written and directed by OaxacaCine’s own Rigoberto Perezcano the film was recently awarded Best Film at the Morelia Film Fest. This is a free screening and shouldn’t be missed.
You can see the full list of films and watch the trailers below.
Roger Koza will be conducting a three day seminar entitled ‘Entrenamiento elemental para cinéfilos’ on the 24-26th of December. This is a free event however places are limited so you’ll need to book quickly. Check the OaxacaCine website for more details.
