SUCH IS LIFE IN THE TROPICS

Screening

03/12/2017 3:30pm

Guayaquil is Ecuador’s populous city. It is also the most afflicted with class disparity. Such is Life in the Tropics focuses on a wealthy young man struggling to evict 250 families who have been squatting on the land he has inherited from his father. The appointed leader of the squatters is willing to negotiate—but can this high-tension conflict, so emblematic of the city’s fraught economic imbalances, be resolved without bloodshed?
At once an homage and a scalding social critique, the latest from Miami Film Festival veteran Sebastián Cordero (Cronicas, Pescador) portrays Guayaquil in all its colour and chaos.
