Naomis Reise (2017)

Naomis Reise is a somewhat experimental drama, focusing almost exclusively on a fictitious but realistically staged German murder trial and the way it affects the Peruvian relatives of the victim.

The Watchman (2017)

A very well-made drama from The Dominican Republic, which sheds a light on the prejudices the country struggles with regarding gender, race, and class.

Despite being predominantly “sad” in tone, and in spite of dealing with heavy issues, The Watchman is a very enjoyable film.

Road to Fame (2008)

A very enjoyable comedy-drama about a casting show and the dreams and hopes of the girls involved. While this may sound like a fluffy concept, it does in fact allow some penetrating glimpses into Mexico’s problems. Strong performances and fine-tuned humour help to make this a very well-rounded film.
