Yesterday was my first day at the Berlinale and after dinner with my sister, Paco and Anna (short clip here in Kyte, not rotated, anyone can help?) we attended the world premiere of Eskalofrio, a movie directed by Isidro Ortiz from Fausto Productions (responsible for Fausto 5.0, a highly recommended movie) and with a very young cast of actors mainly from TV, Junio Valverde (who gave a very nervous speech), Blanca Suarez and Jimmy Barnatan (picture below with the cast). The movie was pretty good, a mix of The Blair Witch Project and Japanese movie The Ring (the German girl in the movie has reminiscences of Sadako, the girl from The Ring) with some pretty funny humor bits and a surprising end. The movie draw special laughs in the audience due to the role played by a German family in the film (Isidro clarified that the choice of the family was done prior to knowing that the film was going to open here). After that, we hanged around a couple of bars and attended a live interview with Gregg Araki (Kyte clip here). Today a lot more people are arriving and we are gearing up for Sunday premier of Elegy.
