Synopsis:
This visually stunning directorial debut is set in the watery Parana delta of northern Argentina. There, violent El Turu is captain of a water bus that links the isolated communities of traditional reed-cutters. One of the workers, Alvaro, is a quiet gay man whose love of books makes him as much an outsider as his sexuality. Is also makes him the perfect target for El Turu's hostility. The misty waterways and solitary lives are beautifully evoked through shimmering black and white photography. The film won a special teddy award at the 2007 Berlin film festival.
La Leon is the fifth film in the soda viva collection, an initiative between Manchester’s annual viva Spanish and Latin American film festival and UK independent film distributor soda pictures. The collection will release the best of Spanish language feature films on DVD
