LFA is proud to invite you to our latest Club Panico@LFA event.
Writer-director and former graduate Cristián Jiménez is back at LFA for a special screening of the highly acclaimed Bonsái, which premiered at Cannes (un certain regard) in 2011, gaining distribution internationally and across the UK in the month’s that followed.
Cristián will be with us after the screening for a Q&A, talking about Bonsái, his filmmaking process and his experience at LFA, providing you with advice about how to make that next step into the film industry.
Julio is a struggling young writer who has hit a wall. Unemployed and involved in a half-hearted relationship with his neighbour, things are finally starting to look up when he gets an interview with a renowned author to transcribe his latest work. Things don’t go as planned, however, and Julio doesn’t t get the job. Instead of admitting the truth to his girlfriend, he pretends to be transcribing the novel when actually writing his own story. Based on an internationally acclaimed novella, Bonsái is a subtly affecting examination of the lies we tell ourselves in order to get by.

See you at the screening!
