Sunday, August 5th at 8 PM: The Heiresses

 

Paraguay/Uruguay/Germany 2018– 95 minutes In Spanish and Guarani with English subtitles. Director,: Marcelo Martinessi Principal Cast: Ana Brun, Margarita Irun, Ana Ivanova, Nilda Gonzalez, María Martins.

Chela and Chiquita, both descended from wealthy families in Asunción, Paraguay, have been together for over 30 years. But recently their financial situation has worsened, and they begin selling off their inherited possessions. When their debts lead to Chiquita being imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela is forced to face a new reality. This understated, keenly observed film won a Best Actress prize for Ana Brun’s beautifully played performance as Chela at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. There’s not a single false note.
