LIGHTNING RELEASES: MIAMI, Florida (12/12/2013) – ViendoMovies celebrates the winter months by programming well-known dramas representing the best of Latin films from Mexico, Chile, Argentina, and Spain. Winter months are particularly important due to increased viewership resulting from low temperatures and a greater number of people in the household.

The film won 2 Ariel’s for “Best Actress” and “Best First Work,” along with an Ariel nomination for “Best Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen.” The story is based on the life of Laura, who meets Arturo and enters an intense and violent sexual relationship. The audience can enjoy additional Mexican feature films such as “De Día y de Noche” (By Day and By Night); where the overpopulation of the planet makes coexisting impossible, the government decides to divide the population of the city by implanting an enzyme in the DNA of the residents, that allows citizens’ bodies to be active by daylight or night fall, converting some into inhabitants of the day and others of the night. As well as, “Mi Universo en Minúsculas” (My Universe in Lowercase), a story about a nurse who goes to Mexico City, a city filled by chaotic frenzy that usually surrounds a city with over 9 million inhabitants, in search of her father’s house, who she believed to be dead.
