Official poster for Gloria

The Organización Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island presents the 11th annual OLA Latino Film Festival, a dynamic weekend showcase of acclaimed and award-winning recent Latino cinema for a broad audience. Screenings will take place in the Lichtenstein Theater.

GLORIA, Chile

Set in Santiago, Chile, Gloria tells the unapologetically frank story of a free-spirited middle aged divorcee’s whirlwind relationship with a former naval officer. 

The film depicts with great realism life in modern day Chile, addressing how gender roles and family life have—and have not—changed despite sexual liberation, consumerism, and capitalism. Gloria was awarded Best Film in the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival. Paulina Garcia, in the title role, won two awards for best actress (Hawaii International Film Festival and 63rd Berlin International Film Festival).

Una historia ambientada en Santiago y se centra en Gloria, una mujer mayor de espíritu libre, y la realidad de su relación torbellino con un ex oficial de la Marina quien conoce a cabo en los clubes. 

Esta película retrata la vida cotidiana de Gloria, un chileno promedio se divorció 50-algo mujer. La trama, como tal, no puede parecer emocionante o innovadores al principio, pero el personaje de Gloria lo compensa todo. Se nos invita a compartir la forma en que Gloria se enfrenta a diferentes situaciones de su vida, y estamos impresionados por su pasión, sentido del humor y la independencia. Se puede estar diciendo que incluso varios días después de ver la película me encuentro pensando en Gloria y sonriente. Un retrato honesto que funciona sin problemas gracias al excelente actuación del personaje principal y la combinación adecuada de los paisajes y la banda sonora. Muy recomendable.
