Temporada De Patos (Duck Season)

SUPPORT

Part of Loft Staff Selects, a monthly series showcasing film favorites chosen by our amazing Loft Cinema staff! This month’s film was chosen by PEGGY JOHNSON, Executive Director!
Presented by Oscar-winner Alfonso Cuarón and directed and co-written by acclaimed filmmaker Fernando Eimbcke (Lake Tahoe; Club Sandwich), Temporada de patos tells the hilarious and heartfelt story of Moko (Diego Cataño, Desierto) and Flama (Daniel Miranda), two fourteen-year-olds who have been best friends since they were kids. They have everything they need to survive yet another boring Sunday: an apartment without parents, videogames, porn magazines, soft drinks and pizza delivery. The electricity company, Rita, the neighbor, Ulises, a pizza deliveryman, eleven seconds, the Real Madrid-Manchester game, some chocolate brownies and a horrible painting of ducks, all combine to break the harmony of what promised to be a placid Sunday, and reveal issues such as the parents’ divorce, loneliness, the confusion between adolescent love and friendship, as well as the frustrations of adulthood. Temporada de patos is a movie that shows that, when the lights go off, we can see the stars. Shot in luminous black and white, this charming gem was the winner of five 2005 Ariel Awards (Mexico’s Academy Award), including Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography. (Dir. by Fernando Eimbcke, 2004, Mexico/USA, in Spanish with English subtitles, 90 mins., Rated R)
