GÜEROS NC16
Advisory: Some Coarse Language and Nudity
Year: 2014
Director: Alonso RuizpalaciosDuration: 106 MinsLanguage: Spanish with English subtitles

The second black-and-white film in the line-up, GÜEROS is a film conceived completelely in the spirit of “now”. Playfully shifting through pace and genre, one can describe the film as a coming-of-age road movie without capturing an iota of what it really is – a cinematic experience of the romantic confusion and frustration of wandering youth. Alonso Ruizpalacios debut outing, GÜEROS is a film unlike any other that heralds in one of the freshest voices in world cinema.
