MATEO

DIRECTOR: MARIA GAMBOA - COLOMBIA

Sixteen-year-old Mateo works with his uncle extorting local small business owners and is about to be expelled from school. The only way he can save himself is to join a theater group led by the town’s priest. Mateo’s uncle views this as an opportunity for Mateo to spy on the priest, who is extolling people to resist the extortion and the gangs of kids involved in petty crime. To his uncle’s surprise, Mateo begins to enjoy the eccentric bunch of performers and begins to fall for star pupil Ana. Trapped between two worlds, Mateo must choose which path he really wants. This heart-warming, inspirational drama exploring the true power of the arts is this year’s Colombian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. Ages 13+.
