SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME, THE (2021)

Special Presentation

[TIEMPOS FUTUROS]
Dusty, dystopian Lima is a shell of its former self, plagued by never-ending drought. Eking out an existence in this gloomy, gray landscape are 12-year-old Teo (Lorenzo Molina) and his father Luis (Fernando Bacilio, EL MUDO). An electrician and inventor, Luis is singularly focused on tinkering with a mysterious machine, determined to create rain regardless of the consequences and strain the work puts on his relationship with his son. Hoping to contribute to the cause, Teo joins a gang of young criminals, but finds confidence and solace in their camaraderie, drawing him further away from his father. V. Checa makes an impressive, noir-tinged debut with this atmospheric take on science fiction and complicated parents. Official Selection, 2021 Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, 2022 Lima, LALIFF and Málaga film festivals. DIR/SCR V. Checa; SCR Victor Huizar; PROD Javier Salvador. Peru/Mexico/Ecuador/Spain/Germany, 2021, color, 82 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
