Description

Co-presented by O Cinema and Oolite Arts, this micro-budget feature film screening launches Oolite Arts’ Cinematic Arts Residency application and is followed by a post-film discussion with Director Samir Oliveros & renowned film critic Rene Rodriguez.

 

After accidentally killing a bearded goat with their father's truck, two incompatible teenagers embark on a journey of reconciliation and comedic misadventure along Colombia's breathtaking Caribbean coast. With no money, brother and sister Corn and Rita must find a way to get the damaged truck fixed in time to pick up the tourists that will be staying at their family's hotel. While struggling to conceal the accident, the siblings visit a butcher, rastafari drum makers, a pawn shop and even a witch doctor over the course of an amazing 24-hour odyssey around Port Paradise.

 

THE FILMMAKER

 

Samir Oliveros was born in Bogota, Colombia in June 1990. He studied film direction at the School Of Visual Arts in NY. After graduation, he launched a Kickstarter campaign that was successfully funded with just over 60K dollars, to shoot his first feature "Bad Lucky Goat," shot in Old Providence in the Colombian Caribbean.
