LocurasMaduras

Anarchic, revolutionary, exuberant and experimental, these films prove that cinema’s established rules were meant to be broken.


  1. Desastres Naturales

    Bernardo Quesney / Locuras Maduras Showcase / Chile / 2014 / Comedy / 74 mins
    Raquel, a teacher who refuses to go calmly into retirement, shows up at her old math classroom and is surprised to find out that she’s been replaced by a much younger instructor. When the new teacher refuses to grant Raquel permission to lead the day’s lesson, the students assist to overthrow her, and reinstate Raquel as classroom instructor. The students vow to hold the the youthful teacher hostage until Raquel gets her old job back. This inadvertently strikes a match that ignites a small revolution at their school in this wild and endlessly entertaining satire.

  2. En La Estancia

    Carlos Armella / Locuras Maduras Showcase / Mexico / 2013 / Drama / 106 mins
    Filmmaker Sebastian makes a reverse journey from Mexico City to a mostly abandoned dusty village named La Estancia. Searching for inspiration, and perhaps a better life, he comes across the two sole remaining residents: the aged Don Jesús Vallejo and his son Juan Diego. Fascinated by their isolated lives and Juan Diego’s absolute loneliness, Sebastian starts to film their daily rituals. The improbable but intense friendship that arises is rudely disrupted, when Sebastian returns to the city, although promising to come back. Years later, he keeps his word and brings along his pregnant partner. However, Juan Diego is nowhere to be found; and Sebastian is determined to find his old friend. But what he discovers is truly shocking.

  3. Navajazo

    Ricardo Silva / Locuras Maduras Showcase / Mexico / 2014 / Documentary, Drama / 75 mins
    Ricardo Silva’s debut feature imagines Tijuana as the setting of an impending social apocalypse. While some of the characters are recognizable and relatable, others are depraved and reproachable. In the end, however, it becomes evident that each one of them is merely trying to survive in an increasingly hostile environment. By mixing fiction and documentary, the film challenges our notion of voyeurism, by presenting us with the raw “truth” of the human condition when faced with adversity. Prepare to be shocked and wowed, and remember, telling yourself “it’s only a movie” won’t help. Mature Audiences Only (Explicit Content).

  4. Relocos Y Repasados

    Manuel Facal / Locuras Maduras Showcase / Brazil / Uruguay / 2013 / Comedy / 97 mins
    When Elias finds a hidden case containing 5 different types of drugs he comes up with the idea of performing an experiment. He calls Andrés and convinces him to find other three friends so that each should try a different drug and see what happens. The experiment takes a sudden turn when Andrés’s girlfriend calls him to say her grandma has died. A stoner comedy that serves as part buzzkill, part roadtrip, part experiment, and all magic, well, drug induced magic.

    Romance is written in the stars for two strangers that meet at a party.
