These images are the first in the series Ampie Vedute, an ongoing project studying the expansive views and architecture of Canale Della Giudecca in Venice, Italy. The body of water offers sweeping views of the diverse architectural styles that span centuries, which in their design have sympathetically retained the aesthetics of this unique city. Inspired by the ethos upon which Venice was built and the muted colors introduced during the Renaissance period, Ampie Vedute explores a minimalistic view of a classic setting, unveiling the intricacies and tones found in the architecture.

La Llorona - Official Trailer [HD] | A Shudder Original
Winner — Venice Days 2019. Official Selection TIFF 2019, Sundance 2020.
Indignant retired general Enrique finally faces trial for the genocidal massacre of thousands of Mayans decades ago. As a horde of angry protestors threatens to invade their opulent home, the women of the house—his haughty wife, conflicted daughter, and precocious granddaughter—weigh their responsibility to shield the erratic, senile Enrique against the devastating truths being publicly revealed and the increasing sense that a wrathful supernatural force is targeting them for his crimes. Meanwhile, much of the family’s domestic staff flees, leaving only loyal housekeeper Valeriana until a mysterious young Indigenous maid arrives.
A tale of horror and magical realism, the film reimagines the iconic Latin American fable as an urgent metaphor of Guatemala’s recent history and tears open the country’s unhealed political wounds to grieve a seldom discussed crime against humanity. LA LLORONA marks Bustamante’s third feature and demonstrates his continued efforts to highlight social inequality in his native Guatemala following his previous titles TEMBLORES (2019) and IXCANUL (2016).
Cast: Maria Mercedes Coroy (Ixcanul), Margarita Kenefic, Sabrina de la Hoz, Julio Diaz.
