Miami International Film Festival
In case you wanted to get your fill of artsy-fartsy movies and pretentious shorts this week, the Miami International Film Festival is here to satisfy your needs. I really haven’t heard much about what’s playing, but judging by these summaries from the Herald, I think we’ve got some real Oscar contenders.
The Pope’s Toilet: Uruguayan film based on a true story about a small-time smuggler who hopes to get rich by cashing in on pilgrims who visit the Pope.
This one just has a great title. You think there’s holy water in the pope’s toilet?
Very Young Girls: Film examines the underage sex trade in New York City
I can only imagine what kind of
fluids people would be in that theater.
XXY : A teenage hermaphrodite struggles to decide whether to be a boy or a girl
This is something everyone can relate to!
Stranded: I’ve Come From a Plane That Crashed on the Mountain: The survival story of an Uruguayan rugby team’s plane crash in the Andes 35 years ago.
This guy knows what he’s doing. Don’t bother making a new movie, just remake a movie that’s already done.
The Return to Innocence: A series of short films on the painful journey of life
In case you need a reminder.
I’m sure there will be something interesting for you to watch, so if you want to switch it up, the MIFF is running through March 9th all over Miami. You can get more info here, at the official site. You can read more summaries here.
