Latin Wave 9 film screening: I Thought It Was a Party

Gale Cine

Divorced and living with her teenage daughter, Lu (Valeria Bertuccelli) asks her close friend Ana (Elena Anaya) to house-sit while she goes away with her new fiancée. Ana spends her days lazing by the pool, afflicted by a deep loneliness. During this time, Ana gets to know Lu's ex-husband and begins an affair that will have profound implications on her friendship with Lu.

Victoria Galardi's second solo feature is an honest and poignant commentary on loneliness and friendship between women. Subtle, tender and complemented by a magnificent cast, Galardi explores the many conditions and challenges that friendships are forced to face.

The screening will be introduced by the filmmaker.
