Vancouver Latin American Film Festival

We are pleased to announce Flamenco Rosario & Vancouver International Flamenco Festival have partnered with the VANCOUVER LATIN FILM FESTIVAL to support the following film: FROM TUESDAY TO TUESDAY (DE MARTES A MARTES) | Argentina, 2012

Synopsis: Juan’s passion is bodybuilding, but he earns his living working in a garment factory where he is constantly bullied by his boss and co-workers for his muscular physique. He keeps to himself and quietly dreams of quitting to set up his own gym. But first, he needs to come up with the money. One night, Juan witnesses a crime. Stunned and confused, he must contemplate what to do with the information now in his possession. The unfolding of this moral dilemma will make audiences clutch their seats in exasperation and expectation, and vigorously debate at what moment the possibility of doing the right thing is lost.

Screening Dates: Saturday, August 31st, 9:15pm at The Pacific Cinematheque AND Tuesday, September 3rd, 5:00pm at The Pacific Cinematheque

The festival will culminate with the presentation of four awards:  the First-Time Directors Award; the Al Jazeera Documentary Award; the VLAFF Short Film Award; and, the Youth Choice Award. This September, end your summer with ten days of the best of Latin American cinema and culture.
