Videofilia (and Other Viral Syndromes)
Thursday, March 23, 2017, 08:00pm - 10:00pm

Winner of the Tiger Award for Best Film at the Rotterdam Film Festival and also Peru’s 2017 Academy Award Submission for Best Foreign‐Language Film, Videofilia (and Other Viral Syndromes) begins as a teenage misfit spends her first days out of school slacking and experimenting with drugs and cyberspace. She meets Junior online. He's an aspiring amateur porn dealer into conspiracy theories and is also convinced that the Mayan Apocalypse is happening. Once they meet in the 'real world,' a series of bizarre events unfold in this contemporary non‐love story that portrays a post‐modern Lima as a glitchy computer virus full of corruption, psychedelia and ancient ruins. Videofilia is Peru's 2017 Oscar Submission

dir. Juan Daniel F. Molero Peru, 2016, 1h 52 min.
