Love Unlimited

Director: Alejandro Ochoa.

This is a story about love for humankind, about loss, corruption and arms trafficking, set against the backdrop of the global financial crisis. A doctor and anesthesiology expert from an NGO, trying to relieve pain all over the world, suddenly enters a personal journey to the limits of suffering. Portraying the eternal fight between good and evil, this drama/thriller celebrates the heroism of people who struggle for a better world and the strength of the human spirit. It combines the humanity found in "The Constant Gardener" with the action of "The Bourne Trilogy", adding a twist of magical realism. Starring Javier Alcina, Belen Lopez, Anne Hof Bauer, Cesar Pereira, Pedro Casablanc, Ian Pirie, Ed Hughes and Antonio Garrido. Directed by Alejandro Ochoa.

Reservation = Thousands of people from all over the country gathered in the centre of Moscow to attend the celebrations of the 66th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War on the Red Square. But most of them had managed to see very little of celebrations: the entire city center cordoned off by police, preventing the ingress of people to the Red Square. While the military parade was marching across the Red Square, low-key Russians with no special permits wandered from one barrier to another hoping to catch at least some part of celebrations

PRESS

Director: Kazuyuki Akashi.

“My family fell apart long ago…” Kumi, 18, hit her father and no longer goes to school. She spends her days on a riverbank, which is also the favorite place of 28-year-old hostess Ryo, who owes money to Kumi’s father, Daikou. Even though Kumi considers Ryo, her father’s mistress, to be a sworn enemy, she begins to feel something of a connection with her and so comes to the riverbank to see her. Ryo hates Daikou for suddenly demanding she give back all the money he had given her, but despite this she too begins to feel a connection to Kumi, in whom she sees something of her own past. One day, Kumi meets Riyu, 17, a victim of online bullying. Unlike Kumi, Riyu continues to go to school despite a falling out with her ex-best friend, Saki. Kumi’s indifference proves strangely enticing to Riyu. Kumi and her mother, Kasumi, 40, stopped communicating with each other a long time ago. Kumi is cold to her mother, whose mental state gradually deteriorates, but at the same time does not know how to express herself. Daikou struggles with an impending lawsuit against him. Kasumi tries to revive her family by behaving as if everything was normal. Saki wishes she could make up with Riyu. All of their thoughts intertwine. For Kumi time has stopped since she hit her father. Riyu suffers as she tries to graduate high school. Ryo projects her own past onto Kumi’s present. Will they manage to get their lives back on track?

Festival Internacional de Cine Social de Concordia

Dejar de ser solo espectador La consigna parece fácil: levantarse de la butaca. Vivir (ver y hacer) el cine social implica una predisposición mayor a debatir las problemáticas sociales para hacer una relectura sobre nuestra manera de actuar.

Del 20 al 29 de abril de 2012 entre todos construiremos el Festival Internacional de Cine Social de Concordia, con actividades con escuelas, películas, más debates, charlas abiertas, talleres de capacitación e invitados.
