THE CLANel_clan-262802426-large Argentina, 2015 Spanish with English subtitles/ 110′ Director/Writer: Pablo Trapero wanna-ticket-200x74 Sat, Sept-3 5 PM | SFU Woodward's Based on a true story that rocked Argentina, The Clan tells the almost unbelievable tale of the Clan Puccio, a seemingly normal middle-class family who kidnapped wealthy people off the street, held the victims for ransom, and, once paid, killed them. The Clan is a disturbing, impressive, and beautifully controlled film from a director whose work matures with each new project. Also driving it is the beloved Guillermo Francella's magnificent turn: a performance for the ages. ''Pablo Trapero’s wrenching, exciting new film, could be described as an examination of the banality of evil'' A. Scott New York Times. Festivals and Awards: Venice Film Festival 2015: Best director. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Argentina 2015: Best new actor Best Cinematography Official selection: Venice Film Festival 2015 Toronto Film Festival, 2015 Argentina, comienzos de los años 80. Detrás de la fachada de una típica familia del distinguido barrio de San Isidro, se oculta un siniestro clan dedicado al secuestro y asesinato como modo de vida. Arquímedes, el patriarca, lidera y planifica los operativos. Alejandro, el hijo mayor, estrella del club de rugby casi y jugador del seleccionado nacional Los Pumas, se somete a la voluntad de su padre para "marcar" posibles candidatos y se sirve de su popularidad para no levantar sospechas.
