In a remarkable feature-film debut, Ernesto Contreras explores solitude and the quest for love. Marina (Cecilia Suárez), a factory worker, one day wins an all-expense-paid beach paradise trip for two from her employer. Unfortunately she has no-one to invite as her guest, so she decides to ask Victor (Enrique Arreola), a complete stranger… Featuring the Ray Davies track This Strange Effect, performed by Dave Berry, and set in a modern Mexican megalopolis, the film showcases wonderful performances by Cecilia Suarez and Enrique Arreola. Both beautifully poignant and blackly comedic, BLUE EYELIDS (PARPADOS AZULES) is a strikingly original debut from a director to watch.
