PR Octubre on DVD Feb 21

New Yorker Films



A deadpan dark comedy incorporating influences ranging from Jim Jarmusch and Aki Kaurismaeki to Robert Bresson. It is October, the "purple month"; in Lima, when the grey city's somber tones give way to processions celebrating the Lord of Miracles. Sofia spends her days as a worshipper, but her nights still ache with loneliness. One day, her neighbor, Clemente, a small-time loan shark with a penchant for reckless hookers, grave solitude, money lending and nothing else, is left with a baby. While he searches for the child's prostitute mother, Sofia joyfully starts taking care of the infant in Clemente s house.

Octubre

A film by Daniel & Diego Vega

Winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival in Un Certain Regard, Octubre, the first feature film from brothers Daniel and Diego Vega, is a deadpan dark comedy incorporating influences ranging from Jim Jarmusch and Aki Kaurismaeki to Robert Bresson. It is October, the "purple month"; in Lima, when the grey city's somber tones give way to processions celebrating the Lord of Miracles. Sofia spends her days as a worshipper, but her nights still ache with loneliness. One day, her neighbor, Clemente, a small-time loan shark with a penchant for reckless hookers, grave solitude, money lending and nothing else, is left with a baby. While he searches for the child's prostitute mother, Sofia joyfully starts taking care of the infant in Clemente s house. Clemente will thus discover emotional attachments he never thought he had. This miraculous revelation, befitting the month of October, with its air of hope for better things, will present a once unpleasant, cold and lonely man with the chance to change his life.
