San Cristóbal De Las Casas Reveals Full 2015 Lineup

The San Cristóbal De Las Casas International Film Festival revealed yesterday the full lineup for its very first edition, which kicks off next week (January 16).

The definitive highlight is the Ukrainian silent film The Tribe, which for me is a masterpiece. As opening film, San Cristóbal De Las Casas will have the documentary ThuleTuvalu, about the consequences of global warming (I recently reviewed it after its screening at Los Cabos).

The official selection in competition is divided in three sections: short film, fiction, and documentary. 

The acclaimed Timbuktu as well as Juliano Ribeiro Salgado and Wim Wenders' doc The Salt of the Earth are among the must-see films from the official selection.
