La hija natural Love Child

Leticia Tonos

Dominican Republic/Puerto Rico, Melodrama, 2011 95 min, HD, Color Spanish with English subtitles

 

As a child, María was a simple and sensitive young girl with the strange habit of putting ladybugs in her mouth. After her mother dies in an accident, 18 year-old María decides to look for the father she has never met. She travels to a nearby town taking what few belongings she has. She finds her father, Joaquín, living in a dark, old house in the middle of an abandoned banana plantation, which the locals claim is haunted by spirits. He lives there with an enigmatic Haitian as his only companion. Having no one else in the world, she has no option but to stay with this drunken and recently widowed old man, and confront the ghosts of the past that haunt them both.

Dominican Republic/Mexico/Germany, Drama, 2010 84 min, 35mm, Color Spanish/Haitian Creole with English subtitles

 

Jean, a middle-aged Haitian professor, is always on the move looking for work. Although a job on a building site is a possible option for the unemployed Haitian, Jean is looking for something more suited to the intellectual he considers himself to be. Feeling more and more unfulfilled with his prospects, he finds himself on an increasingly desperate journey to find his place in the world, or even a reason to live. He disappears into the interior of the island as both a lost soul and soul lost amongst his surroundings.
