About this Event

In an attempt to save her crumbling marriage, Remedios has organized a grand party in her home to celebrate the recent Pritzker Prize that her husband has won. However, things take a turn for the worst when on the morning of the party, she discovers her husband in their marital bed with another woman. Blinded by hysteria, despair, pain and the thirst for explanations, Remedios tries to scare her husband with a gun that, by whims of destiny, ends up killing him. With guests arriving in a few hours, and her oblivious son and daughter already on the way, Remedios must convince Berta, the maid of the house, to help her hide the body and host the greatest party of the century, without anyone noticing that the man of the hour is missing. With guests growing anxious, more mistresses coming out of the woodwork, and their daughter desperately seeking her father, things become increasingly complicated for Remedios to keep her secret, survive the pain of heartbreak and keep the truth from threatening the family nucleus. In the end, Remedios will have to face the truth to save what’s left of her hysterically dysfunctional family.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR – FRANCISCO LUPINI-BASAGOITI

Francisco Lupini Basagoiti was named the best Latino Filmmaker on the East Coast by the Director’s Guild of America for his directing in the short film EL NIDO VACÍO (THE EMPTY NEST). Now a New York based filmmaker, Francisco was born in Caracas, Venezuela to Spanish and Italian parents. Over the past 5 years Francisco’s films have earned him over 60 Official Festival Selections around the world. He has received multiple Audience Awards at festivals including Chicago Latino Film Festival, Palm Springs International Short Fest and Costa Rica Film Festival. He was awarded the Golden Palm Award at the Mexico International Film Festival, Best Short Film at Columbus Inter- national Film & Video Festival, the oldest festival in the US, and a special mention for Best Drama at the Trieste Festival of Latin American Cinema. His work often features strong female protago- nists and focuses on themes about family drama, human obsessions and the pursuit of truth through an Italian sensibility and Spanish flair inspired by the Latin American experience. Francisco received his BFA in Film and TV Production as well as Dramatic Literature from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. While still in development, the script to HE MATADO A MI MARIDO received an Official Selection for the Global Script Challenge at the Oaxaca Film Festi- val in Mexico.
