The Camden International Film Festival, the annual documentary film festival based in Camden, Rockport, and Rockland, Maine, has announced the lineup for its 15th edition, which includes the U.S. premiere the Argentine film La vida en común by Ezequiel Yanco.
In Yanco’s film, a mountain lion stalks Pueblo Nación Ranquel, an indigenous community located in the norther Argentine desert. Hunting is a rite of passage, and the older boys want to kill it. But Uriel decides to take another path. The film had its world premiere last April at the Visions du Reel Film Festival in Switzerland followed by the Buenos Aires Film Festival (BAFICI).
Other Latin American titles to be screened at Camden are the Belgian-Peruvian film By the Name of Tania by Mary Jiménez and Bénédicte Liénard, the Mexican film Caballerango by Juan Pablo González, the US-Mexico productions Chèche Lavi by Sam Ellison, Ready for War by Andrew Renzi, and Midnight Family by Luke Lorentzen, and the Lithuanian-Brazilian film El Padre Médico by Vytautas Puidokas.
The 15th edition of the Camden International Film Festival will take place September 12 - 15 in Maine.
