Sunday, September 1 | 6:30 PM | SFU Woodwards
Followed by the Closing Night Party in the World Art Centre with music by Los Duendes and catering by Boteco Brasil.
Filmed in shadowy blues and greys, Asfixia is a spellbinding, darkly humorous social drama, made all the more riveting by Johana Fragoso’s incredible performance as Alma. – VLAFF
