In the Summers
On a journey that spans the formative years of their lives, two sisters navigate their loving but volatile father during their yearly summer visits to his home in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
With grounded thoughtfulness, debut feature director Alessandra Lacorazza weaves a rich tapestry of memories in New Mexico as childhood and adolescence collide with the realities of adulthood. René Pérez Joglar (Residente) gives a layered and gut-wrenching performance as the charming-yet-troubled Vicente, struggling to fully connect with his daughters through games that slowly lose their luster in the shadow of his habits. A talented cast, including Sasha Calle and Lío Mehiel inhabit Violeta and Eva through cinematic ellipses as their understanding of their father deepens. In The Summers proves both an emotional capsule of growing up within a fragmented family and a love letter to the resilience needed to survive.
In the Summers won the US Dramatic Grand Jury Prize and Directing Award at Sundance 2024.
Director: Alessandra Lacorazza
Feña, a young trans guy bustling through life in New York City, is afflicted with an incessantly challenging day that resurrects ghosts from his past. Settling the disharmony of transitional upheaval in relationships familial, romantic, and platonic is Feña’s task at hand, and his resulting juggling act is equal parts skillful, fumbling, and honest. In negotiating his obliqueness, the poignant moments he finds between himself and others — as the distance between them closes — are warm, true, and touching.

The Scroll of Morlok
