THE EMPTY CLASSROOM [El aula vacía]
Co-presented with the Inter-American Development Bank
Nearly half of all young people in Latin America never finish high school. To explore this dropout crisis, Gael García Bernal gathered 11 award-winning filmmakers who have created a captivating anthology of short films, both narrative and documentary. There is no easy solution to this complex issue, and each short delves into the underlying reasons, from poverty to societal traditions, that students aren’t graduating. This omnibus features films by AFI Latin American Film Festival alumni such as Argentina’s Lucrecia Martel (THE HEADLESS WOMAN), El Salvador’s Tatiana Huezo (THE TINIEST PLACE), Mexico’s Mariana Chenillo (PARADISE), Peru’s Daniel and Diego Vega (THE MUTE) and Uruguay’s Pablo Stoll (WHISKY). Official Selection, 2015 Malaga, BAFICI, Guadalajara Film Festivals.
