Que-viva-la-música-Poster-Empeliculados.co_ LIVEFOREVER Que viva la música Colombia, 2015 Spanish with English subtitles/ 102' Director: Carlos Moreno wanna-ticket-200x74 Monday, Aug-29 9 PM | The Cinematheque Saturday, Sept-3 9 PM | The Cinematheque Inspired by the 1977 best-selling Colombian cult novel ¡Que viva la música! by Andrés Caicedo, and drenched in a Fania Records soundtrack, Liveforever defies all narrative convention to deliver a lyrical, heady experience driven by mesmerizing bolts of energy, drugs, sexuality, irreverence and salsa. On one side of the river that segregates the city of Cali into haves and have-nots, María del Carmen, a privileged teenager, feels compelled to shake up her life. She leaves her well-appointed house and flagrantly gives herself over to this chaotic city, saying "yes" to everything provocative it offers her. Only the music tethers her body and spirit together, even as she reaches for redemption through a bold, delicious and resplendent self-destruction. Carlos Moreno’s rich and sensual adaptation... Liveforever is a deftly edited and rewarding visual and sonic experience.” Michael Mejia, Sundance Review La película sigue los pasos de la exuberante María del Carmen por la ciudad de Cali, Colombia. Impulsada por la música y el baile que encuentra en el camino, esta chica abandona la comodidad de su casa para probar todo lo que la ciudad tiene para ofrecerle. Inspirada en la novela del escritor Andrés Caicedo, un texto de culto para la juventud colombiana en los años 70, la cinta nos muestra los barrios bajos bañados por la salsa de Richie Ray y la opulencia de las fiestas regidas por las drogas y el rock and roll.
