Lake Tahoe: From Mexico

April 24, 2008–Every year, FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) presents its “Revelation of the Year” at a special screening during the International Critics’ Week in Cannes. One film is chosen out of the first or second films awarded by the Federation during the previous year, in the belief that it deserves the chance to be seen by the Cannes audience, and that the Cannes audience deserves the chance to see it.

This year’s Revelation is Mexican filmmaker Fernando Eimbcke’s second feature Lake Tahoe, awarded at the Berlinale, where it was selected in the official competition. His first film, Duck Season , had been revealed by the Critics’ Week in 2004, and went on to have an impressive international career.

The screening will begin with Andrea Hydake’s short film The Runt , which received the FIPRESCI Prize at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. The event, followed by a q&a with Fernando Eimbcke, will take place on Saturday, May 17th, at 15 h at the Espace Miramar.
