Global Lens Film Series: 'Life Kills Me' = La Vida Me Mata

Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, 2 p.m.

Life Kills MeA screening of the Spanish film Life Kills Me = La Vida Me Mata, as part of the 2013 Global Lens Film Series, in the Meeting Room on the first floor.

Directed by Sebastián Silva Chile. 2007, Spanish, with subtitles in English.

Life and death come wrapped in a mutual embrace, both absurd and poignant, in this smart comedy about an unlikely friendship between a grieving cinematographer and a morbidly obsessed drifter.

At work on a seriously schlocky, low-budget horror film, Gaspar is still reeling from the untimely death of his beloved older brother when he meets Alvaro at yet another premature funeral. A mildly sociopathic young man with an unyielding curiosity for the dark side, Alvaro soon coaxes Gaspar out of his shell in unexpected ways, in a debut film that pulses with a sure cinematic style as it channels a compassionate vision of frail, formidable, unforgettable lives.
