Featured Release – Año uña

Año uña directed by Jonás Cuarón

Every Friday, Fandor’s curators serve up a newly available film worthy of special attention. This week’s Featured Release is Año uña directed by Jonás Cuarón.

“…a thoughtful, tender but quite hip look at two young people with too much separating them for a match to ever be possible.” – Robert Koehler, Variety

Año uña, the directorial debut from Gravity screenwriter Jonás Cuarón, synthesizes beautifully intimate still photographs and voice-over dialogue to tell the endearing story of a traveling American college student and her intense but hard-to-define relationship with a Mexican youth. They say a picture is a worth a thousand words, and this sweet coming-of-age tale is a testament to the enduring power of photography to capture the fleeting moments of one’s life and reveal the emotional stories behind them. It’s an unconventional love story told in an unconventional manner; click here to watch a preview clip from Año uña and add it to your queue.
