THIS IS NOT BERLIN (Esto no es Berlín)

First show: September 07

“A coolness factor off the charts… musically and otherwise seductive.” – Variety

1986, Mexico City. Seventeen-year-old Carlos doesn’t fit in anywhere: not with his family, and not with his friends from school. But everything changes when he’s invited to a mythical nightclub where he discovers an underground scene he never knew existed – a post-punk paradise of sexual liberty and chemical abandon that challenges his relationship with his best friend and lets him find his true passion.

A las puertas de la Copa Mundial de Fútbol de 1986, Carlos, un chico de diecisiete años, está más interesado en escuchar música y admirar a Rita, la hermana de su mejor amigo, Gera. Su vida monótona termina cuando la banda gótica de Rita les introduce a un club nocturno clandestino, “El Azteca”. Ambos quedarán embelesados con este mundo de performances, ambigüedad sexual y drogas. Sin embargo, en esta exploración de sus nuevas identidades, también se pondrá a prueba su amistad.

Directed by Hari Sama. Mexico. 2019. In Spanish with English subtitles. 112 min. Official selection: Sundance Film Festival; Tribeca Film Festival.

Presented by RoxCine and Outlook.
