CFF: Day Four

La Isla

In July 2005 a huge explosion in the Guatemalan capital leads to the discovery of a historic archive of Guatemala’s national police. On the grounds of today’s police academy once stood the Island, the secret prison of the notorious Policia Nacional squads. Aided by an extraordinary visual and emotional interaction, the film traces the story of a tragedy of inconceivable atrocities. It is also the story of a young generation of archive workers willing to free their society from the stranglehold of its own history.

Charismatic Ritchie Wheeler, brother and sister Brent and Michelle, and wise-cracking lady’s man Kenny share a seemingly complacent existence. Their summer of alcohol-induced idling cannot console the collapse of their tumultuous home lives amid the closing of their hometown hangout, the local roller rink. Set in the brutal but beautiful vastness of East Texas during the early 1980s.


The Award Winning Narrative will be announced today!  Stay tuned!
