FIRST FEATURE AWARD

From Afar

Desde allá

LORENZO VIGAS
Venezuela, Mexico, 2015
93 minutes, Color
Official website

Middle-aged and unprepossessing, Antonio (Alfredo Castro) makes dentures for a living. He has a bit of Eliot's Prufrock in him, but in the teeming streets of Caracas he knows what he wants and can always spot it: rough trade, never to touch, only to look at. When he brings home a young thug named Elder (Luis Silva), the boy's repressed desires and troubled past touch a familiar nerve in Antonio. Gradually, he draws Elder into his world: life force meets black hole. Lorenzo Vigas sets up Antonio as an enigma. As portrayed by veteran Chilean actor Castro, he remains as mercurial as thought, as ambiguous as sexuality itself. Vigas's auspicious first feature won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and wide critical praise for the "grace, subtlety, and tension" (as Variety put it) of its elliptical narrative.—Judy Bloch

In Spanish with English subtitles
