The Calm After the Storm (Como el cielo después de llover)

Part of A Gaviria Double: The Calm after the Storm w/Q&A + The Rose Seller

Director Mercedes Gaviria IN PERSON for a post-screening conversation moderated by filmmaker/artist Claudia Escobar

After studying abroad, Mercedes returns to Colombia to work on the next film by her father, the famous Víctor Gaviria (The Rose Seller). Fluctuating between admiration and reproach, Mercedes constructs a private diary that goes beyond familial conflicts to question the place of women in the film world.

“Never didactic, the director tries always to keep distance, but it is not easy to keep the distance from your family. A calm, but moving reflection on gender and filmmaking.” – Meredith Taylor, Filmuforia

“A bright example of these new [Latin American] gazes, which aim to renew and rebuild new paths in Latin American filmmaking, and break away from ideologies rooted in past generations, by exposing and questioning them.” – Ivonne Sheen, DesistFilm

Make it a double feature and see also Víctor Gaviria’s The Rose Seller at 6:25p for $19. The Rose Seller celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year and will be introduced by Mercedes Gaviria.

Presented by RoxCine in collaboration with Cine+Mas 15 San Francisco Latino Film Festival and with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Special thanks to Cinema Tropical.
