The Peruvian Motion Picture Press Association (Asociación Peruana de Prensa Cinematográfica, APRECI) named Raúl del Busto's El espacio entre las cosas / The Space Between Things (pictured) as Best Peruvian Film of the Year.
Starring Natalia Pena, Fernando Escribens, Ricardo Sandi and Fernando Vílchez, the film is about a director that is preparing his new film, a crime thriller whose main character is a detective by the name of Glauber Maldonado. Mysterious events will convert the the lives of the detective and the filmmaker into a fuzzy journey between reality and hallucination.
The Space Between Things is del Bustó's sophomore film, after his 2005 feature film debut Detrás del mar. The film won a Special Jury Mention at the past edition of the Independent Lima Film Fest.
Previous APRECI winners include Omar Forero's Chicama (2012), Rosario García-Montero's Las malas intenciones / The Bad Intentions (2011), Héctor Gálvez's Paraíso (2010), and Claudia Llosa's La teta asustada / The Milk of Sorrow (2009).
