Walking Distance / Distancias Cortas | Friday 9th September 7pm
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE & SCREENING ONCE ONLY
Fede lives a lonely life. Morbidly obese and isolated, his only human connection comes through visits from his overbearing sister and her long-suffering husband. Inspired after seeing their vacation photos, Fede makes a rare journey out of his apartment to develop an old roll of film, an action that reintroduces friendship, discovery, and joy into his life in this delicate and sweetly realised debut film.
Feature, Mexico, 2016, Dir. Alejandro Guzmán Álvarez, 104 min, Spanish with English subtitles
