For this “Film of the Week” section Latin America Film presents  ”Joven y alocada’‘. A chilean film by director Marialy Rivas who after “Cinema under construction” at the last San Sebastian Film Festival has been recently selected for the Sundance Film Festival (World Cinema Dramatic Competition) and the International Film Festival Berlin.
The film tells the story of Daniela, a petite, pretty teenager raised in the bosom of a strict and well-to-do evangelical family in Santiago, Chile. Daniela is also a 17-year-old who finds that her raging sexual drive is difficult to reconcile with the orders of her religion. With no outlet for her desire, Daniela taps into a rampant underground network of other horny teenagers through her sexually charged blog. As she types the gospel of her life as a fornicator online, Daniela still goes to church and prays to Jesus, “Lord, see to it that Mother doesn’t type youngandwild.blogspot.com!”
Director Marialy Rivas’s handsome debut feature is a playful and energetic coming-of-age story about a young woman who refuses to make choices that limit her pleasure. Brought to life by an attractive cast, led by the enigmatic Alicia Rodríguez, Young & Wild romps through the burning fires of religious fervor and youthful sexual energy to deliver a delightful portrait of contemporary teenage life in Santiago.
