Dad & I want to check out these flicks that will be screening at Film Independent's 17th (!!!) LA Film Festival. 
" The LAFF takes place June 16-26 in downtown Los Angeles. The Festival screens more than 200 features, shorts, documentaries and music videos from more than 40 countries. The Festival connects the movie-loving public to critically acclaimed filmmakers, film industry professionals, and emerging talent in the heart of Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world."
The Argentine Consulate sent us an e-mail promoting the following two films (Pascui Rivas grew up in Cordoba, the 2nd largest city in Argentina, & "Sidewalls" takes place in Bueno Aires) and I'm excited to see them both!  

Argentina/Germany/Spain    DIR Gustavo Taretto (91 minutes) CAST: Pilar López de Ayala, Javier Drolas, Inés Efron, Rafael Ferro, Adrián NavarroMariana and Martín are two lonely souls, living in tiny apartments within a block of each other in Buenos Aires. Both are young and attractive (if a tad neurotic), and they have many common tastes and views. In short, they would make a perfect couple. . .if they could just once manage to meet. 
    Saturday, June 18, 10:20 p.m., Regal 10- 

    Monday, June 20, 7:20 p.m., Downtown Independent

“Jean Lewis”
Argentina/ USA           DIR Pascui Rivas (10 minutes)
A once-famous Hollywood reporter is being moved to a retirement home and must leave more than her belongings behind.
    Fri, Jun 17th 7:40pm, Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE 14 
    Sat, Jun 18th 4:00pm, Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE 10

There are so many films screening and like most of the music festivals I go to, I find myself wishing there were more hours in the day, or that I could be in two places at once. 

Definitely going to have to make time for Miranda July's "The Future" 
I'll be at the screening on June 24th @ 7:20pm, the REDCAT
