The Bella Vista

Original Title: El Bella Vista
Directors: Alicia Cano
Germany / Uruguay
Spanish with subtitles
73 min min
Cinema of the Americas

The Bella Vista tells the story of a onetime soccer team’s clubhouse in Uruguay. Left abandoned for years, the house is revived as a brothel for the town’s transvestite prostitutes, raising the ire of residents who seek to reclaim the building for a Catholic chapel. In capturing the opposing sides of this conflict over a rather small, mundane building, director Alicia Cano creates a lyrical, intimate portrait of a provincial city.
