APRIL 3, 8 PM TANTA AGUA (SO MUCH WATER) Directed by Ana Guevara and Leticia Jorge, Uruguay/México/Holland/Germany, 2013
What can be worse than being 14 and going on vacation with your father? Alberto, who doesn’t see his kids Lucía and Federico much since his divorce, refuses to allow anything to ruin his plans for vacation at a hot springs resort. But the springs are closed due to heavy rains, and Lucía’s adolescent rebellion clashes against her father’s enthusiastic efforts for family quality time. When she meets friends her age, Lucía’s vacation starts looking up. But flings can be fleeting, and it’s her father’s reliable insistence they spend time together that proves to be the most meaningful part of their unexpectedly enjoyable getaway.
