Today’s #LAFF2015 feature film is from the magical country of Colombia! 

Sofia y el terco (Sofia and the Stubborn Man) dir. Andrés Burgos, Colombia, 2013, 74 minutes, 7pm, English sub-titles
Sofia and her husband Gustavo live in a small village in the Colombian countryside. Their life has just been a long repetition. He is the owner of a grocery. She does everything in their house. But she has a dream: to go to the seaside. Gustavo stubbornly refuses to entertain such an idea. Frustrated, Sofia decides to take charge. “Almodovar regular Carmen Maura plays a passive, childlike woman who’s never left her isolated village; the “stubborn man” is her husband, a benign tyrant who’s kept her from ever leaving. Maura’s endearing, mainly silent performance recalls Giulietta Masina in Fellini’s Nights of Cabiria, and the colorful production design evokes Disney cartoons.” Ben Sachs (Chicago Reader). A charming, touching tale of love in the time of obstinacy
