VLAFF presents Much Ado About Nothing
Reel Causes will be partnering with Vancouver Latin American Film Festival to present Much Ado About Nothing Saturday Sept 3rd at 7PM. In this brand new Chilean drama, twenty-something Vicente loves his carefree life. He adores parties, girls and fast cars. One Sunday night as he is cruising around the city with some other young folks whom he has just met at a party, their car is rocked by a hefty collision. The next morning he learns that a man – a father of three – was run over and nobody stopped to help him. Although Vicente was in the backseat at the time, he is accused of the crime. The father of the young man who was driving is a powerful figure in Chile who cannot allow his reputation to be tarnished. Based on a recent true story in Chile that shook the whole country, the disturbing facts of this case shed a critical light on the complex intersection of justice and wealth.
Reel Causes partners with filmmakers and Canadian causes dedicated to addressing global social justice issues. We host film screenings followed by a Q&A session to educate and inspire our community, and provide a forum for authentic conversation around the issues that affect us locally.
