Contrasting visions of world cinema
FRANCE, Guatemala, Luxembourg | 107 minutes | 2019
Pablo is a model of good behaviour. He’s devoted to his wife and two kids, he goes to church regularly, life’s good and the money’s flowing in. When he comes out to his bourgeois family, the news hits them like a ton of bricks. Pablo’s kin do everything in their power to set him on the straight and narrow. For his second feature, the Guatemalan filmmaker astutely examines the barriers to free choice in the face of evangelist teachings. A nail-biter of a film, anxiety-inducing from beginning to end, that tackles homophobia with aplomb.In collaboration with image+nation"There are any number of movies about gay men trying to liberate themselves from the long shadow of heteronormative oppression (...) but few have been told with the extraordinary nuance or compassion of Jayro Bustamante’s Tremors."
