The San Antonio Museum of Art will be presenting La Vida Me Mata (Life Kills Me) for their annual Global Lens event. The debut film directed by acclaimed Chilean visual artist Sebastian Silva, La Vida Me Mata is a smart comedy about an unlikely friendship between a grieving cinematographer and a morbidly obsessed drifter. Gaspar is a struggling, twenty-something year old cameraman, at work on a seriously schlocky, low-budget horror film, while also still coping with the death of his adored older brother six years ago. However, after meeting Alvaro at yet another premature funeral, Gaspar's outlook on life begins to change as Alvaro soon coaxes him out of his shell in many unexpected ways. Director, Silva, succeeds in seizing both your heart and humor in this film that pulses with a unique cinematic style as it channels a compassionate vision of frail, formidable, and unforgettable lives. You do not want to miss this.
Recorded in Spanish, the film will also be shown with English subtitles.
