SF IndieFest: IT’S ALWAYS AUTUMN (SIEMPRE ES OTOÑO)
First show: February 08
This talky meditation on lost love unfolds in black-and-white as if to defy its protagonists’ youth: Javier and Nora split as teens, but is there still a flame seven years later? Javier is in a new relationship but seems dissatisfied. Nora is guarded and seems to be harboring much more resentment than Javier–which makes sense once we get to the juicy telenovela twist.
Sure-footed in its simple rendering of not-so-simple conversation, this stripped-down Spanish mumblecore plays more like Linklater’s BEFORE SUNSET or the early films of Eric Rohmer.
Directed by Alex Sereno. Spain. 75 min.
PLAYS WITH DOSED!
On Grace’s 25th birthday, the celebration does not go as planned when her boyfriend Matthew gets her a very unconventional gift.
Directed by Keith Powell. US. 8 min. Digital.
