65th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (6th - 17th October 2021) DAY 6

Every day (from October 6th to October 17th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.

This film also screens at BFI Southbank on October 12th. Full details here.

BFI preview:

Hatzín has left Mexico City to pick up his father’s remains, on behalf of his grandmother, from a mass grave. However, on the bus back home he sees a man who looks unsettlingly similar to his father. He impulsively leaves the bus to pursue the man, with surprising consequences; none more so than the emotional journey Hatzín undertakes, beautifully mapped across the social landscape he navigates, in a symbolic attempt at finally gaining his father’s love. As in his award-winning first film, From Afar (LFF 2015), Lorenzo Vigas crafts complex characters faced with difficult moral choices. Hatzín Navarrete and Hernán Mendoza excel as the son and the man he pursues, in a tale where the personal and the political are skillfully interwoven and nothing is quite what it first seems.
