CINÉLATINO 2013, Films in Progress section : “CLIMAS” BY ENRICA PÉREZ WINNER OF THE CICAE/EUROPA DISTRIBUTION AWARD!
Enrica Pérez’s portrait of three Peruvian women really moved the jury of european exhibitors and distributors at Cinélatino 2013 and became an award in the Cinema under Construction section. Member of the jury for the CICAE was Domenico Dinoia (Progetto Lumiere, Italie).
Climas tells the story of “three women from different ages and social backgrounds living in three different regions of Peru. Eva is a girl awakening to her sexuality, surrounded by the tropical climate of Amazonia. Victoria is a wealthy woman from Lima bearing a tragic secret which makes her life dull and cold like the city she lives in. Zoraida is an elderly woman from the Andean community welcoming her son after a very long absence. Three regions, three women, three stories affected by the various geographies, societies and climates of a fragmented country.“
