Outsider Pictures presents the Second Annual Latin American Film Showcase: Women on the Verge, a series of five films sampling the latest outstanding work from one of the most exciting frontiers of contemporary world cinema: Latin America

Produced, written, directed or edited by up-and-coming and established Latin American female filmmakers, these films celebrate and embrace traditional Latino sensibilities and values while also exploring the realities of the human condition and the conflict created when these cannot be reconciled. At the core of each of these five films beats the heart of a woman: a woman at a defining crossroads in life who is on the verge of transcending her current circumstance or making that false step that could send her into the abyss.

The five films, showing from August 12 – 18 at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in Los Angeles, CA, are “The Water at the End of the World” (Argentina),“The Good Herbs” (Mexico),"It's Your Fault" (Argentina),“Of Love and Other Demons” (Costa Rica), and “Portraits in a Sea of Lies ” (Columbia).

General admission is available for each of the five films or a special $30 Showcase Pass may be purchased at the theater which gains admittance to all five of the Latin American Showcase films. More information can be found at laemmle.com (for show times) and at outsiderpictures.us (for information regarding each film).

2nd Annual Latin American Film Showcase: Women on the Verge / The Films:

"It's Your Fault" ("Por Tu Culpa," Argentina) - Director: Anahí Berneri
Cast: Erica Rivas, Nicasio Galan, Zenon Galan, Ruben Viani, Marta Bianchini

Exhausted divorced mother, Julieta is struggling to meet a critical work deadline while trying to put her two young energetic boys to bed. When the youngest falls and is injured, Julieta rushes the child to hospital but as soon as she arrives, her life spirals further out of control as the staff question her treatment of the boys and investigate potential abuse. As the story unfolds, the question of who to blame and who to believe becomes difficult to answer. This minimalist third feature by director Anahi Berneri ("A Year Without Love") is helmed with acuity and features a high-wire, carefully controlled performance by Erica Rivas as a woman on the verge of losing her children.

“Portraits in a Sea of Lies ” (“Retratos en un Mar de Mentiras,” Colombia) - Director: Carlos Gaviria
Cast: Paola Baldión, Julián Román, Edgardo Román, Valeria Fuentes

After the accidental death of their grandfather, amnesic and mute Marina is taken under wing by wheeler-dealer cousin Jairo (Julian Roman) as they decide to try to recover the land from which Marina was displaced years ago. As they travel from Bogotá to the Caribbean coast in an old beat-up Renault 4, the story of her traumatic past starts to unfold. Writer-director Carlos Gaviria frames a ravishing landscape that hides a legacy of fear.

“Portraits in a Sea of Lies ” is a portrait of Colombia, a country where despite suffering an ongoing civil war for the past 60 years, Colombians see themselves as the happiest people in the world.

“The Good Herbs” (“Las Buenos Hierbas,” Mexico) - Director: Maria Novaro
Cast: Úrsula Pruneda, Ofelia Medina, Ana Ofelia Murguía, Cosmo González Muñoz, Gabino Rodriguez

Everything changes for single mother Dalia (Ursula Pruneda) when she learns that her mother Lala (Ofelia Medina), a respected herbalist, has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Lala asks her daughter to help her before she completely loses her mind and gives Dalia her latest research on plants and herbal remedies that according to Pre-Columbian, Mexican tradition cure the human soul. Dahlia thus begins a compelling journey into her mother’s mind and memories as well as into her own identity. Sure-footed direction by leading Mexican filmmaker Maria Novaro eschews melodrama and creates a densely woven world of real domestic tensions and lifestyles.

“The Water at the End of the World” (“El Agua Del Fin Del Mundo,” Argentina) - Director: Paula Siero
Cast: Guadalupe Docampo, Diana Lamas, Facundo Arana, Graciela Stefani, Mario Alarcon, Antonio Ugo, Mauricio Dayub

Laura and Adriana are two sisters who live together and desire to take one final journey together after Adriana’s health begins to deteriorate from an inoperable condition. With very little money on hand, Laura does everything possible to find the cash so that they can leave their impoverished neighborhood in Buenos Aires for Ushuaia, a place at the end of the world where Adriana wants to spend her last days. A powerful, moving feature debut from actress Paula Siero offers a warm, intensely honest, and humane story of two sisters desperate to come to terms with one another before it’s too late.

“Of Love and Other Demons” (“Del Amor y Otros Demonios,” Costa Rica) - Director: Hilda Hidalgo
Cast: Pablo Derqui, Eliza Triana, Jordi Dauder, Joaquin Climent, Margarita Rosa de Francisco, Damián Alcázar, Martha Leal

Based on Gabriel García Márquez's novel, this film is set in colonial South America during a time of superstition and fear. A rabid dog bites fiery, 13-year-old noble Sierva María (Eliza Triana). Fearing her to be possessed, the family imprisons her in a convent. Father Delaura (Pablo Derqui), the passionate young protégé of the bishop, is sent to oversee her exorcism. He alone understands the absurd cruelty of her plight, but his denunciation of her treatment is complicated by the chaste but forbidden love blossoming between them. Costa Rican director Hilda Hidalgo’s debut feature is a masterful blend of understated performances infused with the dreamlike atmosphere of the Colombian novelist's source material.
