Alexandra Latishev Salazar – Medea (2017)

María José is 25. Her life moves back and forth between the monotony of class at the university, her eternally distant parents, and a couple of alternative spaces where she can explore her own and others’ limits. One day, she meets Javier, a boy she really likes and tries to have a relationship with, but her behavior starts changing radically. In fact, she’s a few months into her pregnancy and no one knows.

Medea was selected as the Costa Rican entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards. Read More »
