|Cocote||Cocote||2019-09-29T04:00:00Z||<p>A rapturous crime fable set
in the Dominican Republic, Nelson Carlo De Los Santos Arias’ <em>Cocote</em>
follows Alberto, a kind-hearted gardener returning home to attend his father’s
funeral. When he discovers that a powerful local figure is responsible for his
father’s death, Alberto realizes that he’s been summoned by his family to
avenge the murder. It’s an unthinkable act — especially for him, an Evangelical
Christian. But as pressure mounts, he sees few ways out. Questions of faith,
tradition and honor course through this electrifying film, which, seemingly at
the speed of thought itself, jumps between film formats, colors, and aspect
ratios, radically envisioning a community torn asunder by senseless violence. </p>||uaCrqgEL3pw|

the Catalan province to live with her aunt and uncle, who are now her new legal

She now has a little sister for whom she has to take care of and has to deal
