Porfirio
Alejandro Landes, 2011
Colombia | 101min minutes

Director in person for Q&A at both screenings!

Paralyzed from the waist down by a stray police bullet, the title character in Alejandro Landes’s remarkable film spends his days selling minutes on his cell phone, flirting with his comely neighbor—and secretly plotting his revenge. Landes worked on the film for five years, creating a tale that joins the most intimate details of Porfirio’s day-to-day life with an astonishing recreation of his attempt to hijack an airplane.
