Film of the week: Contracorriente (Peru) Trailer and feedback from the Director
Contracorriente, from the Peruvian filmmaker Javier Fuentes León, keeps on its sucessful track: it was released Tuesday in Los Angeles as part of the Outfest Film Festival, where it was presented to members of the Hollywood film industry as the centerpiece.
“The audience’s response was overwhelming; they gave us a long standing ovation. This premier in Los Angeles is one of the most important ones for me, and these events have made me very happy,” said Fuentes Leon.
Contracorriente had previously won the Audience Award for Best First Feature at the Galway Film Fleadh in Ireland, the most important in that country.
The film will be released in England, Scotland and Ireland on August 6th, and in Peru on August 26th
