  • The Kid Who Lies

    2011. Venezuela/Peru/Germany. Directed by Marité Ugás. With Iker Fernández, Francisco Denis, María Fernanda Ferro. A 13-year-old boy journeys along the Venezuelan coast, searching, it seems, for something or someone. In order to survive he captivates people with the ever-changing tale of how he survived the mudslide that tore away much of the area where he lived with his parents. His true past, however, gradually becomes clearer through evocative flashback sequences interspersed into his tall tales like corrections from his subconscious mind. Ten years ago the mudslide took his mother, and now he seeks her out with only a miniscule bit of information. The road is difficult, but it’s his to discover, and the pieces fall gradually into place as the young boy comes to terms with his traumatic past. In Spanish; English subtitles. 99 min.
