Camila must contend with long-stifled emotions when she learns the cemetery where her son’s ashes are kept has been condemned. Erika is on the cusp of leaving for Spain to start a new life with her daughter when a meeting with a client yields a startling surprise. Marlon and The Happy Girl are street performers whose makeup and costumes shield their troubled true identities.
This enchanting anthology film from Colombian writer-director Carlos César Arbeláez offers a trio of beguiling tales, each originating on Mother’s Day at the same Medellín coffee shop—each offering delight and catharsis in their disparate ratios.
"Eso que Llaman Amor" (That Thing Called Love) shows at 6 p.m., followed by a live Q & A (via Skype) with Director Carlos César Arbeláez.
