Acclaimed filmmaker José María Cabral (WOODPECKERS, THE PROJECTIONIST) sets his mordant melodrama against the backdrop of the 1965 civil war in the Dominican Republic, which included an invasion by U.S. troops. Madame Judith (Lumi Lizardo) runs her Santo Domingo seaside hotel/brothel with ruthless efficiency, even though business is down due to the political and social unrest outside her door. But soon the war comes to the Hotel Coppelia, too, with first the rebel forces quartering in her business, then later the Americans. Navigating the terrible dangers of this situation, sex workers Gloria, Beti and Marie must make increasingly difficult decisions that will put their already divided loyalties to the test, with their lives and the lives of others hanging in the balance. Official Selection, 2021 Miami Film Festival. DIR/SCR José María Cabral; PROD Rafael Elias Munoz. Dominican Republic, 2021, color, 113 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
