After its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, Jayro Bustamante’s second film, TREMORS, will premiere in Luxembourg during the Luxembourg City Film Festival, in the Made In/With Luxembourg section. This new edition of the festival will be held from March 7 to 17, 2019.
TREMORS follows Pablo, a 40-year-old married father of two wonderful children. A role model and a practicing evangelical Christian, his perfect traditional life begins to crack when he falls in love with a man. Pablo finds his feelings in conflict with beliefs. And his life becomes a hell of repressive intolerance when his family and his church decide to do whatever it takes to “cure him”, forcing Pablo to suppress his urges through therapy.
Written and directed by Jayro Bustamante, including Juan Pablo Olyslager, Mauricio Armas Zebadúa, Diane Bathen and María Telón, TREMORS is a co-production between Tu vas Voir, La Casa de Producción, Iris Productions, Memento Films Productions and ARTE France Cinéma. The production was supported by l’Aide aux Cinéma du Monde, the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée, the Institut Français, the Film Fund Luxembourg, the Région Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the Cinergiafund and the Gan Fondation.
Film Factory Entertainment handles the international sales, while Cinéart will distribute the film on the Benelux territory.
