Costa Rican Film VIAJE to Have its World Premiere at Tribeca

The Tribeca Film Festival announced today its first slate of programming for its 2015 edition, which includes the world premiere of the Costa Rican film Viaje (pictured) as the only Latin American film in the World Narrative Feature Competition.

The sophomore production by director Paz Fábrega tells the story of Luciana and Pedro, who after meeting at a party, spark up a spontaneous rendezvous when Luciana accompanies Pedro to a national forest on a work trip. Eschewing the fraudulent nature of traditional relationships, the pair explores the beauty in the nature that surrounds them as they indulge in the passions of their encounter and navigate the various meanings of commitment.

The US-Cuban co-production Havana Motor Club by Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt will also have its world premiere in the World Documentary Competition.

The Viewpoints section of the festival will feature the Argentinean film El Cinco / El 5 de Talleres, directed and written by Uruguayan director Adrián Biniez; and the Belgian-Mexican co-production Lucifer by Gust Van den Berghe.

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival runs April 15-26 in New York City.
