Argentina & Brazil Represented at SF Indie Fest

The 19th SF Indie Fest kicks off on February 2 and runs through February 17th with films, parties and special events. We are excited to be co-presenting two wonderful films- 2001: While Kubrick Was in Space from Argentina and Kill Me Please from Brazil. Visit SFIndieFest.com for full festival details.

2001: While Kubrick was in Space / Mientras Kubrick Estaba En El Espacio
Directed by Gabriel Nicoli
2016, Argentina, 76 min, North American Premiere, Comedy/Drama
Roxie Theater  Feb 11, 5pm; Alamo Drafthouse  Feb 12, 915p – BUY TICKETS

Stanley Kubrick imagined the year 2001 to be a technological world, but for Buenos Aires that same year meant the worst financial crisis in their history. Three teenage friends tormented by their uncertain future decide to avoid reality and escape from everything on a road trip in a stolen pink car. During their odyssey, they’ll have to confront their fears, knowing that adulthood is waiting just around the corner. Gabriel Nicoli’s debut feature is an unexpected pop vision of a damaged country- a place where Kubrick lives on as a god.

Kill Me Please / Mate Me Por Favor
Directed by Anita Rocha da Silveira
2016, Brazil, 101 min, Northern California Premiere
RoxieTheater  Feb 12, 715p; Alamo Feb 16, 630p BUY TICKETS

The classic coming-of-age premise “You guys wanna go see a dead body?” from Stand By Me gets an update and twist as fifteen-year-old Bia becomes obsessed with a series of unsolved murders and the graveyard Facebook pages of the victims. Drawn into the world of darkness, she finds more in common with the dead girls than her own group of friends.  Visually alluring, it’s a refreshing, unapologetic love letter to melancholic curiosity, something every teen passes through.

Robert Rodriguez in THE BLACK MAMBA

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

For the first time in our film recollection, veteran filmmaker Robert Rodriguez appears in one of his films – his short  about Kobe Bryant titled THE BLACK MAMBA.

The short film for Nike also stars Danny Trejo, Kobe Bryant, Kanye West, Bruce Willis and some wicked looking basketball beasts.

Here it is in its entirety. Enjoy!

Will Iñárritu and Bardem win big this weekend?

Alejandro González Iñárritu

We are on the verge of finding out who the big Oscar winners are. Javier Bardem could potentially walk away with an Oscar for his performance in the exceptionally strong film, Biutiful.

The last actor to win the award for their work in a foreign film was Marion Cotillard for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose – the same year Bardem won Best Supporting Actor for No Country for Old Men.

Biutiful is also nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. We’re rooting for Iñárritu. This film is the strongest we’ve seen in years. Well done.
