Chilean Actress to Attend Film Festival
Chilean actress Pauline García will attend the New Zealand International Film Festival to support the Civic Theatre screening of her film Gloria.
Gloria is a Chilean/Spanish co-production that tells the story of a divorced woman in her 50s attempting to recapture her life. García was awarded Best Actress at the Berlin International Film Festival 2013, the first time in 21 years that a Silver Bear award has been presented to a Chilean production.
“Paulina Garcia’s performance in this marvellous film is one of the year’s most truly inspired and inspiring. Her appearance at the Civic screening will be a wonderful bonus for festivalgoers,” says NZIFF director Bill Gosden.
The film has met with widespread critical acclaim since its Berlin award. “It’s hard to imagine anyone with a heart and a brain not responding to the quiet delights and stunning intimacy of Chilean director Sebastián Lelio’s account of the personal evolution of a 58-year-old divorcee, played with scrupulous honesty and intelligence by the wonderful Paulina García.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.
Pauline García will be present for the Wednesday 31 July Civic Theatre, Auckland, screening of her film.
Gloria screens in Auckland Monday 29 July 1.00pm at the Civic Theatre and Wednesday 31 July 6.30pm at the Civic Theatre. The screenings on Friday 26 July at Rialto Cinemas Newmarket and Saturday 27 July at Rialto Cinemas Newmarket are now sold out.
Gloria screens in Wellington Monday 5 August 1.30pm at the Embassy Theatre, Wednesday 7 August 6.15pm at the Embassy Theatre and Sunday 11 August 5.00pm at the Penthouse Cinema.
Gloria screens in Christchurch on Thursday 8 August, 11.00am and 8.30pm, and Sunday 11 August 1.00pm at Hoyts Northlands. Dunedin screenings will be held on Thursday 15 August, 1.30pm and Tuesday 20 August, 6.15pm at the Regent Theatre.
