2015 San Diego Latino Film Festival

Descosidos Showcase

Family. What is perhaps the most important, loaded, frustrating, ebullient, and confounding word in any language is interpreted beautifully and often-times heartbreakingly in the cinematic achievements featured in this showcase.


  1. Casa Grande

    Fellipe Barbosa / Descosidos Showcase / Brazil / 2014 / 115 mins
    Jean is a high school senior living a privileged life in an affluent neighborhood in Rio. While racial and class tensions present themselves in various forms, Jean remains oblivious, choosing instead to focus on his primary concern: girls. However, beyond the facade of Jean’s luxurious existence lies the reality of his family’s financial situation, one that indicates his father may be inching toward financial ruin. This causes small, initially inconspicuous changes in Jean’s everyday life. However, his father’s rising desperation and several unexpected circumstances, prompt Jean to contemplate a life without the luxuries he once took for granted.

  2. Gente De Bien

    Franco Lolli / Descosidos Showcase / Colombia/France / 2014 / Drama / 86 mins
    Eric is sent to live with his father, Gabriel, in an indigent sector of Bogota. The two struggle to relate to one another from the get go, establishing an emotionally precarious relationship between father and son. Complicating matters is Eric’s exposure to the wealthy lifestyle of the family that Gabriel does odd handyman jobs for. As Eric gets a taste of what privileged life is really like, he begins forming a strong bond with the opulent family. A series of incidents belie the authenticity of this relationship; as the disparities between the two social classes reveal surprisingly toxic behaviors.
