SF LATINO FILM FESTIVAL: LITTLE WHITE LIE (LA MENTIRITA BLANCA)
September 23 only
Centerpiece of the Cine + Mas SF Latino Film Festival at the Roxie!
In an age where fact-based news has become increasingly compromised by social media, counter-knowledge and the cult of personality, this feature debut from rapper, deejay and director Tomás Alzamora feels piercingly del momento.
The protagonist of Little White Lie is a journalist struggling to maintain a career in a small Chilean town. Worrying that he’s on the verge of losing his job, he fabricates a story—a “little white lie”—that turns into a very big deal, transforming him into a hugely popular local celebrity. Should our humble hero confess his peccadillo or sacrifice his integrity at the altar of fame? Find out in one of the wittiest debuts of this or any other year.
Directed by Tomás Alzamora. Chile / 2017 / Comedy, Drama / 80 mins / Spanish with English subtitles
