Synopsis

FLAWA presents the winner of Leopard for Best Director at 71st Locarno Festival, Dominga Sotomayor's Too Late To Die Young.


Dominga Sotomayor’s latest award-winning film, Too Late to Die Young is a beguiling coming-of-age drama. Chile in the summer of 1990. As the country comes to terms with the end of Pinochet’s dictatorship, a group of adolescents living on a rural commune attempt to make sense of their own burgeoning desires and tangled relationships. Produced by Rodrigo Teixeira (Call Me By Your Name) and featuring a standout performance from newcomer, Demian Hernández, as sixteen-year old Sofia, this is a subtly observed and beautifully shot evocation of a time brimming with hope and trepidation.


FLAWA is a new arts festival showcasing female Latin American talent in London. Over five days of events, guests will enjoy live musical performances (from Liniker, La Dame Blanche and others), take part in literary events, talks and discussions (with the likes of Yara Rodrigues and Alia Trabucco Zerán), as well as admiring an art exhibition and attending multiple films, including Marialy Rivas’ award-winning Princesita.


The Festival of Latin American Women in Arts (FLAWA), will be the first festival of its kind in the British capital, showing the perceptions of women from Latin America in film, music, literature and arts in a range of London venues between the 15th and 19th May 2019.
