La palabra de Pablo
The new film by the Salvadoran Arturo Menéndez, is a few days from being finished.
The film, directed by Menéndez (and with a script of his own), tells a family drama of the Salvadoran upper class. Pablo is the son of a lawyer in whose past a corruption scandal weighs. His father has a new (and young) girlfriend, which annoys Pablo and leads him to become entangled in a lot of lies trying to convince the protagonist that the woman is unfaithful to him with his stepson. With dye of black cinema, and built in the light of Shakespeare, this story is told from the perspective of a polarized society that has not finished healing the issues of its past.
The production was in charge of a few dogs, Meridiano 89, El Salvador Films, Sivela Pictures, Ithaca Films and 2.35 Digital, which commissioned the colorization and the completion of it. This feature film will become the second by Arturo Menéndez, who in 2014 was very successful with Malacrianza.
“Nothing is easy and much less film in Latin America, worse in El Salvador,” writes Menendez, no doubt excited to see finalized a project that has surely required a lot of effort and sacrifices. “We’ll see each other in movie theaters and hopefully at some festival too,” he says.
