In celebration of Outfest Screening Writing Lab 20th Anniversary and in conjunction with PST:LA/LA, Outfest is excited to present the award-winning and critically-acclaimed film — Contracorriente (Undertow). Writer-director Javier Fuentes-León feature debut film was Peru's official submission for the Oscar's Best Foreign Picture the year the film came out.

Bound to a tradition that forbids his love to another man, Miguel(Cristian Mercado) is forced to live a secret life that, when exposed, threatens to dismantle his family and circle of friends. Miguel's passionate and steamy affair with local painter Santiago sates his sexual desires, but he is torn between his duty to his wife and his love for Santiago. After a tragic accident, Miguel must come to terms with his contradictory feelings, building a bold declaration of love that will set free Santiago and himself, and transform the village.

Join writer-director Javier Fuentes-León in a Q/A after the film.
