American Visa

One of headline thrillers of the Festival this year is Juan Carlos Valdivia’s “American Visa”in which a Bolivian academic finds himself swept up in a world of political, criminal and sexual intrigue. Being denied a US visa proves to be the start of a chain of life-changing events for Professor Mario Alvarez, viz: staging a hold up of the American consulate and falling in love with a beautiful, young prostitute (Blanca, played by Kate del Castillo). High octane drama at the ideological cutting edge.
