Synopsis

In a mundane hospital hallway, fine arts photographer Nicolas, epileptic since childhood, falls for the aloof Isabel, unaware she is visiting her suicidal
mother. The narrative begins through Nicolas’s lens then cuts back to follow Isabel prior to their meeting. Their stories merge as they’re suddenly engaged
in a highly charged relationship. When the intense getting acquainted period wanes, it seems worth attempting to transcend respective flaws and demons, yet
commitment is not something that comes easy to either of these resolutely independent people. Nico and Isabel find the future increasingly less foreseeable
and the vivid present ever more deeply affecting.

Synopsis

On December 25, 1985, adding to the chaos of September’s earthquake, Mexico awakened with news of the theft of 140+ pieces from the capitol city’s National
Museum of Anthropology. The heist was perfectly executed, bypassing the guards who were busy celebrating Christmas Eve. No one imagined that the
perpetrators of the robbery slept peacefully, nightly, in the suburb of Ciudad Satélite – veterinary students and lifelong friends, Carlos Perches and
Ramon Sardina. The magnitude of the theft wildly exceeded the expectations of the thieves. Carlos and Ramon depart their comfortable life for an underworld
adventure that drags them into the abyss.

“Remember”
Direcor: Atom Egoyan

“Remember”
stars Academy Award Winners Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau, directed by Acadamy Award Nominee Atom Egoyan, produced by Golden Globe Nominee Robert
Lantos. See pertinent info on page 31 of LCFF Industry Catalogue:
