Join us for the first day of the Spanish and Latin American Film Festival:
7 BOXES (7 Cajas)
Directed by: Juan Carlos Maneglia, Tana Schémbori / Paraguay / 105 min / 2014 / Spanish, Guaraní, and Korean with English subtitles
It’s Friday night in Asunción, Paraguay, and the temperature is sweltering. Víctor, a 17-year-old wheelbarrow delivery boy, dreams of becoming famous and covets a fancy TV set in the infamous Mercado 4. He’s offered a chance to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents in exchange for a quick one hundred US dollars. But, what sounds like an easy job soon gets complicated. Something in the boxes is highly coveted and Víctor and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about. Reminiscent of Slumdog Millionaire, 7 Boxes was declared of Cultural Interest by the National Secretary of Culture of Paraguay.
