[SIN MUERTOS NO HAY CARNAVAL]
2016 Oscar® Selection, Ecuador
Sebastián Cordero (CRONICAS, EUROPA REPORT) crafts a thriller of Shakespearean proportions in this Guayaquil-set tale of greed, betrayal, forbidden romance and political intrigue. Emilio (artist-turned-actor Daniel Adum Gilbert, in his debut role) is a wealthy young man trying to evict the 250 families squatting on land inherited from his father. Promising to help him is Lisandro (Andrés Crespo, CRONICAS), the squatters' self-appointed representative and an unapologetic social-climber. Painting a vivid portrait of Ecuador’s largest city, from its luxurious high-rises to its makeshift shacks, Cordero takes a searing look at economic disparity, corruption and the ordinary lives hanging in the balance. Best Director, 2017 San Diego Latino Film Festival; Official Selection, 2017 Miami Film Festival.
