La vida de los peces | Matias Bize, 2010
Chile | Spanish with English subtitles | 84 minutes

New York Premiere

In this insightful and emotionally intense love story, 33-year old travel writer Andrés returns to his native Chile after having lived in Berlin for 11 years.  After meeting his old friends at a party he is forced to confront his past, his decision to leave and its implications.  Andres drifts through the party (the only location of the film), as if in a fish tank, his surroundings alternately strange and familiar, as he ponders whether to escape or revisit his passion for a lost love.  Winner of a Goya (Spanish Oscar) Award for Best Hispanic American Film in 2011 and Chile's candidate for the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. From the director of En la cama (In Bed; New Directors/New Films 2006) and Sabado (Saturday; Latinbeat 2003).
