Bad Hair, the Venezuelan film winner of the Golden Shell screens October 29th at HT


Dear Friends,
The Portland Latin American Film Festival invites you to the screening of the Venezuelan film Bad Hair (Pelo Malo) directed by Mariana Rondón.

The screening will be held on Thursday, October 29th at The Hollywood Theatre (4122 NE 41st Ave. Portland, OR 97212) at 7:00 PM. The film is shown in Spanish with English subtitles.
Join HISPANIC PROS for pre networking social gathering at 6:00 PM. The film starts at 7:00 PM. .
With minor-key delicacy, Bad Hair (Pelo Malo) focuses on a nine-year old boy exploring issues of identity and desire that he doesn’t yet understand, and the exhausted mother socially conditioned to suppress his self-discovery. Venezuelan writer-director Mariana Rondón trains an unsentimental eye on these two loving but conflicted figures, viewed in the vivid context of a hostile overpopulated city. The result is a spare non-realistic drama that holds attention and emotional involvement with its debt balance of toughness and sensitivity, states The Hollywood Reporter.
The film has received numerous awards, including the Golden Shell at the San Sebastian Film Festival in 2013 and theSpecial Jury Award at the Havana Film Festival for Best Film.
The after party will be at Velo Cult (1969 NE 42nd Ave.) with music by DJ Blas.
Tickets are $9.00 and can be purchased ON LINE, and at the door the day of the event at the Hollywood Theatre.
Portland Latin American Film Festival (PDXLAFF) serves the community as a non-profit cultural promoter under the guidance of the Hollywood Theatre.
