Latin Wave 10 film screening: Sand Dollars
The Dominican Republic beach town of Samana is a popular spot for locals and expats alike. With increased tourism comes new opportunities for locals to improve themselves financially. Sand Dollars follows the lesbian romance between 20-year-old local Noeli and the sophisticated expat Anne (played with incredible nuance by Geraldine Chaplin) who is absolutely smitten and possessive.
Noeli, who lives with her boyfriend, takes advantage of Anne's kindness, but is tempted by the offer of a better life. Told with subtlety and elegance, Sand Dollars offers a clear representation of contemporary reality, probing these unbalanced relationships without judgment.
The screening will be introduced by Geraldine Chaplin.
