EL AMPARO illustrates a true story of a 1988 incident near the border between Venezuela and Colombia.

Pinilla (Vicente Quintero) and Chumba (Giovanni García) leave with a dozen more men from the village of El Amparo on a lucrative fishing trip near the border. The men don’t come back home the next day, causing their family members to be concerned, especially when reports of guerrilla fighting are reported along the border. When Pinilla and Chumba return, they are immediately arrested by the local police. The families want the truth but Pinilla and Chumba are placed under tremendous pressure from speaking out. The two become pawns in a larger conspiracy where the army, politicians and media all have their own version of the truth.

Robert Calzadilla’s riveting film is based on events that took place almost three decades ago, yet their implications still reverberate in societies where the truth is prevented from surfacing.

A young transgender faces the scorn and judgment of society after her boyfriend dies.

Marina is a young bar singer in love with her much older boyfriend, Orlando, and together they plan a perfect future. After Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, Marina is forced to confront the taboo of their relationship to his family and society – to prove herself to be complex, strong, forthright, and, well, fantastic.

The story of the young transgender woman, A FANTASTIC WOMAN is the follow-up from Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Lelio, who made a name for himself with the 2013 hit GLORIA. Embraced for its trans-as-trans casting, the film is currently playing some of the biggest festivals on the circuit. It received accolades at the Berlin International Film Festival, including a Best Picture nomination and the Silver Bear for Best Screenplay, and will be featured as a Special Presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival.

BRIMSTONE & GLORY @ CINEPLEX EAU CLAIRE 4
Sep 30 @ 9:30 pm
BRIMSTONE & GLORY @ CINEPLEX EAU CLAIRE 4 | Calgary | Alberta | Canada

This beautifully-shot tribute to colour, fire and sound focuses on the major fireworks manufacturing city of Tultepec, Mexico.

Tultepec, Mexico is what you might call an explosive city – more than two-thirds of its residents manufacture fireworks. Each year, the inhabitants cautiously begin the exacting work of crafting handmade fireworks – and, naturally, house-sized papier mâché bulls that are set ablaze – for the annual National Pyrotechnic Festival that attracts thousands of spectators, dancers, and revellers. With droves of ambulances and paramedics on standby, the crowd draws dangerously close to the fires and fireworks, believing that such acts will bless them and their communities all year long.

Director Viktor Jakovleski uses GoPros and a flying drone to capture the scene from high above, abstracting and widening the vista of the festival and taking viewers on a magical cinematic journey through the sparks and flames that ignite the night skies.
