Dir. Maximiliano Schonfeld. Argentina/France, 2021, 86 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. When promising young race-car driver Jesús López dies in a motorcycle accident, residents of his Argentine small town are deeply shaken. His teenage cousin Abel is gradually tempted to take Jesús’s place with family and friends, until Abel lets himself be possessed by Jesús’s spirit. Winner of the Cinema Tropical Award for Best Director and the Best Latin American Film Award at the Mar del Plata Film Festival, Jesús López, the fourth feature from Maximiliano Schonfeld, is a captivating and elegantly directed mystical tale about community grief and emancipation.
