  1. Delirium

    Carlos Kaimakamian Carrau / Country of Focus: Argentina Film Showcase / Argentina / 2014 / Comedy / 85 mins
    Federico is working a dead-end job and deeply dissatisfied with the status quo; and his friends, Mariano and Martín, are aimless in their pursuit of a promising future. The trio strike up a seemingly foolproof plan to find success, fame, and wealth: they will produce a low budget film in hopes that it will be a runaway success. The only thing they need is a recognizable movie star. Through a series of misunderstandings, they manage to book Argentina’s biggest film star, Ricardo Darin (playing himself), who believes he’s doing a favor for a friend. The production goes unsurprisingly off-course, leading to a situation that catapults the trio into the the public’s eye for all the wrong reasons, in this zany and hilarious comedy.

    A band of Latin American activist-economists sets out to reduce inequality in the region, with a model that places women at the center of the drive for social change. Collaborating with governments, big banks, and women marginalized by poverty in Peru, Colombia, and Brazil, they spread financial literacy horizontally; using digital education tools and innovative strategies for financial inclusion. Through the program, the women become empowered economic and political agents in their communities, leading the process of societal transformation from the bottom up. 3 millions lives have already been changed. If the model is taken to scale, can 20 million women upend a continent?
