Director Franco Lolli (Gente de Bien) returns to the Festival with this personal and powerful portrait of one woman’s trials and triumphs. Hard-working attorney and single mother Silvia is already stretched thin caring for her domineering cancer-stricken mother. When she becomes unexpectedly entangled in a corruption scandal at work, Silvia must forge her own path to peace and reconciliation. This emotionally engrossing drama features an extraordinary breakout performance by Carolina Sanín.
“Litigante nails the way life just happens sometimes, illustrating one woman’s struggle to stay afloat with authenticity and grace.”
