NARRATIVE CENTERPIECE

END OF THE CENTURY

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2019 | 7:00 PM | NORTHWEST FILM FORUM

Argentina | 2019 | 84 minutes | Lucio Castro | In Spanish with English subtitles

Reception to precede the film at 5:00 PM at Poquitos Capitol Hill.

Ocho (Juan Barberini), a thirtysomething Argentinian poet, is cruising the streets and beaches of Barcelona when he spots Javi (Ramón Pujol), a brawny Spaniard living in Berlin. A series of chance encounters leads to a revelatory one-night stand, Javi discloses something that causes the film to dive into the past.

Through fascinating temporal shifts, the film explores the possibilities of what was, what could have been, what is, and what might be. END OF THE CENTURY (Jury Prize for Best First Feature, Frameline) delivers an emotional and erotic exploration of relationship what-ifs driven by the uncertainties of romantic connection, the challenges of long-term commitment, and the allure of personal freedom.
