JEAN GENTIL

DIRECTOR: Israel Cárdenas, Laura Amelia Guzmán - DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Jean is an educated and devout Christian man, forced like many others to leave Haiti to look for work in the Dominican Republic. His biggest virtue is his remarkably genteel and dignified attitude in the face of rejection and discrimination. Having failed to find work in Santo Domingo, he sets out into the incredibly lush countryside, only to find himself pushed further into loneliness and desperation.

DIRECTOR: Miguel Gonçalves Mendes - PORTUGAL

Co-produced by Pedro and Agustín Almodóvar together with Fernando Meirelles, this affectionate portrait of Portugal’s Nobel Prize winner José Saramago reveals the struggle between the very private man and the world-famous artist. A modestly successful writer at home, Saramago became an international literary giant through the prodding of his Spanish wife, Pilar del Rio. José is an unforgettable love story of genuine soul mates: according to Saramago, “I have ideas for novels, and Pilar has ideas for life.” The film captures the media whirlwind that surrounds the Saramagos after the prize, as well as the quiet, tender moments the couple...
