Candela

A dazzling thriller from the Caribbean developed by the Sundance Lab

The lives of three strangers intertwine as if attracted by the spirals of a hurricane that threatens the Caribbean: Sera, a girl from high society who at night crosses to the slums to have sex with strangers; Lieutenant PĂ©rez, a lonesome policeman who investigates a case in the attempt to repair his broken relationship with his daughters; and Candela, a Drag Queen of a scanty cabaret who seeks Justice. All are united by the mysterious death of Renato a young poet and candy-man. Aided by the Sundance lab, the creators of the movie have conjured up a magical film that is not only unique but it is also suspenseful and mesmerizing. Images bedazzle us, the twist and turns of the storyline shock us while the off-beat characters fascinate.

No wonder that in no time this movie has garnered 18 Official Selections and 10 awards that include the

Jury Prize in Biarritz and three Adopresci Awards
