The Transcinema International Film Festival returns with its ninth edition. The cinephile event has programmed more than 58 films from different countries, which can be seen, from December 2 to 10, in the Armando Robes Godoy room of the Ministry of Culture, the cinema of the Cultural Center of Spain in Lima and the Plazuela of the Arts of the Municipality of Lima.
As every year, the films in this edition cover current issues as a result of the creative investigations of their authors, in which they reflect their concerns for change towards our society.
“No Bears” (Iran) was the film chosen for the opening of the festival. The Iranian film by Jafar Panahi, which was secretly shot in Iran, tells two parallel love stories in which the desires of couples are frustrated by hidden and unavoidable obstacles, the force of superstition and the mechanics of power.
On the other hand, the festival announced the screening of the Peruvian film “Cholo” (Peru), by Peruvian director Bernardo Batievsky, starring soccer player Hugo Sotil and music by the band El Polen. This film, which was recently restored, was chosen to close the festival.
Among the most important and expected activities of the festival, the Transcinema Competition section has prepared several premiere titles for this edition. Among the most recommended are “The Star Sower” (Spain), “The Visit and a Secret Garden” (Spain and Portugal), “Europe” (Germany, France) and “Correspondence to Nastia” (Peru).
The closing activity is scheduled for Saturday, December 10, at 5:00 pm and there will be a dialogue on audiovisual preservation: “The case of Cholo by Bernardo Batievsky. With Lorena Best and Andrea Franco”; This meeting will take place in the Armando Robles Godoy room of the Ministry of Culture of Peru.
