ANTES QUE CANTE EL GALLO
BEFORE THE ROOSTER CROWS
2016, 97 min, Puerto Rico, Dir: Ari Maniel Cruz
After her mother heads for Florida with her boyfriend, Carmín (Miranda Purcell) is left to stay with her grandmother (Cordelia González) in Barranquitas, a mountainous village in central Puerto Rico. The old woman is strict, and the rebellious Carmín is miserable until her father, Rubén (José Eugenio Hernández) returns from prison — but his arrival creates unusual complications in this compelling coming-of-age drama. “Ari Maniel Cruz’s distinctive treatment, fusing strong, earthy performances, particularly from the young lead, intense atmospherics, and a frankly bizarre background, add up to a quietly evocative whole.” — Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter.

Feature in Spanish with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
