Directed by Nathalie Álvarez Mesén (Costa Rica, 2021, 106 min.). Spanish with English subtitles.
In a remote village in Costa Rica, 40-year-old Clara endures a withdrawn life under the command of her repressively religious mother. Her uncanny affinity for creatures large and small allows Clara to find solace in the natural world around her. Tension builds within the family as Clara’s younger niece approaches her quinceañera, igniting a sexual and mystical awakening in Clara, and a journey to free herself from the conventions that have dominated her life. With lush cinematography and a nod to Stephen King's Carrie, Clara Sola was a lauded selection of the Cannes Film Festival.
Co-presented with Cinefest Latino Boston.
