"An enjoyable genre-bender" -Hollywood Reporter
When bricks of cocaine wash up on the shore, aimless fisherman Blanquito finds himself armed with an entirely different sort of bait, glimpsing a chance for a new future. He uses the contraband as an excuse to leave the sleepy beach town for the city, where he hopes to change his life. Due to a beautiful yet anxious travelling companion, Blanquito is slowly realizing that his relocation has left him standing at an impasse, as he faces corruption, social injustice as well as his "loss of innocence".
Directed by Sebastián Cordero, Ecuador/Colombia, 2011, 96 mins.
In Spanish with English subtitles.
A cocktail reception will precede this screening from 6-7 pm.
