Colombian drama Gente de bien on DVD and digital in May

14 May 2015

From Cannes-nominated director Franco Lolli comes human drama Gente de bien, the story of a young boy who is sent to live with his estranged father.

Set in the backdrop of modern day Colombia, newcomer Brayan Santamaría plays 10-year-old Eric who, with his dog Lupe, is sent to live with his father Gabriel, played by Carlos Fernando Pérez. Gabriel’s employer offers to help by taking them away for Christmas with her family, but her good intentions merely highlight the class divide between them.

Gente de bien was nominated for Semaine de la Critique (Critics Week Grand Prize) and Camera d’or (Golden Camera) both at Cannes Film Festival 2014, and won the Horizons Award – Special Mention at San Sebastián International Film Festival and Best Film at Ghent International Film Festival.

Gente de bien will be released by Network Distributing and be available exclusively through Curzon Home Cinema from 11th May 2015, followed by DVD, iTunes and BFI Player from 25th May 2015. The DVD will have the retail price of £12.99.
