La boda de Rosa (Rosa's Wedding) - Spain

Rosa is as a woman who decides to take charge of her life after always putting others first. About to turn 45 and working as a seamstress, Rosa finds herself overwhelmed by the demands of her many family members, friends and neighbours and decides to leave everything behind and move to her childhood home in the scenic coastal town of Benicàssim and – much to the consternation of her family – announces her engagement to someone that those around her can’t quite accept or believe in.

Rosa’s Wedding is a life-affirming call to self-empowerment and independence.

La Odisea de los giles (Heroic Losers) - Argentina

Heroic Losers is a classic underdog adventure featuring the superb Ricardo Darín and his real-life son Chino on screen together for the first time. The movie is a homespun Argentine Ocean’s 11 about a retired soccer star who joins forces with other locals in their small town to run a co-op to help their community. But when they fall prey to a deceptive, sleazy banker, they risk losing everything – unless their crazy plan to steal back their own money actually works.

It is a rousing tale of working-class solidarity and collective revenge.

Genre: Comedy, Adventure, Crime

Director:  Sebastián Borensztein
