PIFF 38: GÜEROS

Gueros

“This plucky and effortlessly cool black-and-white film from newcomer Alonso Ruiz Palacios follows three restless teens during the student strikes of 1999. Federico and Santos are roommates in Mexico City, students ‘on strike from the strike’ now that their university has been shut down, when Federico’s brother Tomás arrives. Looking to kill some time and their boredom, they hit the streets of the city looking for famed rock star Epigmenio Cruz, who once allegedly made Bob Dylan cry.”—AFI Fest. “A coming-of-age comedy which pays homage to the French new wave.”—Indiewire. Best New Narrative Director, Tribeca Film Festival and Audience Awards at the Morelia and AFI Film Festivals. First feature.

GÜEROS screens Monday, February 16 at 6pm at the Moreland Theater, Wednesday, February 18 at 8:30pm at Regal Fox Tower 10, and Thursday, February 19 at 6pm at Cinema 21 as part of the 38th Portland International Film Festival.

Tickets are available online or at the door.


The Portland International Film Festival is sponsored by The Oregonian/OREGONLIVE, LAIKA, Regal Entertainment Group, Delta Airlines, Yelp!, Travel Portland, King Estate, Hotel Modera, The Autzen Foundation, The Lamb-Baldwin Foundation, KINK.fm, and many others.
