BERLINALE 2015: POOL-SIDE VIEW

By Oriana Franceschi

“Val, can you turn on the lights please?” and flash the pool is illuminated. It shines like a sapphire, a bright jewel in the crown of the wealthy family for whom Val works as a maid in comic drama The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?, Brazil, 2015), directed by Anna Muylaert.

BERLINALE 2014: DÍA CINCO Y SEIS

Por José Sarmiento Hinojosa

Los últimos días de la Berlinale llegaron, y sin embargo no hay sorpresas desde la competencia principal vista en el Palast. Como todos los años (ante una declinación particular de la calidad en los últimos años), la sección Forum ofreció lo mejor que el festival presentó
