Other screenings during the four-day Latin Wave festival include Las acacias by Argentine director Pablo Giorgelli, which follows a truck driver who has agreed to give a young stranger a ride. He doesn’t know that she’s bringing her five-month-old daughter along on the 1,000‑mile trip. Of the three, the little girl is the most vocal, even if it’s just gurgles and coos; both the truck driver and the mother are almost completely silent during their road trip. The lack of conversation, however, doesn’t keep the two from falling in love. (Las acacias screens at 5 p.m. Thursday and 1 p.m. Saturday.)
Actor Katerina D’Onofrio will be in attendance for the screening of Peruvian Rosario Garcia-Montero’s Las malas intenciones (Bad Intentions), and Argentine director Santiago Mitre will be on hand for El estudiante (The Student), as will Chilean Cristián Jiménez for Bonsai.
