Director Teresa Costantini (left) was here in Chicago last week to screen her new film Felicitas at our 26th annual Chicago Latino Film Festival. She is now on her way east to screen Felicitas in NYC too.
Felicitas is a gorgeously produced 19th Century romance with a feminist kick. Recipient of 8 nominations from the film academy of Argentina, Felicitas is already a big success in Latin America & is now making its debut in international film festivals such as our CLFF. I encourage all of you to see Felicitas on a big screen if at all possible. It’s definitely worth it!
Just a note for those you coming to this film unfamiliar with Latin American history: Teresa told me the story of “the real Felicitas” is very well known in Argentina, in other words this film is a BioPic (historically reimagined of course) rather than “just” an Argentinean version of Gone with the Wind.
