COWS WEARING GLASSES
(Las vacas con gafas)
directed by Alex Santiago Pérez
Caribbean Film Series
Thursday, November 10th, 7:30pm | BAM Rose Cinemas
When eccentric painter and art professor Marcelino (Daniel Lugo) contracts a disease that makes him lose his eyesight, he is forced to rethink his relationship with his daughter, and take stock of a life full of professional success but a personal one that’s totally unsatisfactory, in “Cows Wearing Glasses (Las vacas con gafas),” an intimate portrayal filled with biting humor and a dynamic performance by star Daniel Lugo.
Winner of the International Film Festival Curaçao Yellow Robin Award and named Best Film at the FEMI Guadaloupe Int’l Film Festival, this debut feature film from Puerto Rican director Alex Santiago Pérez, is a reflection on the position of a man who long ago lost sight of himself, and is now forced to face the inevitable.
Presented by the Caribbean Film Academy, the Brooklyn Cinema Collective, and BAMcinématek, “Cows Wearing Glasses” will screen as part of the Caribbean Film Series at BAM Rose Cinemas on Thursday, November 10th at 7:30pm.
