EXPIRATION DATE [Fecha de caducidad]

A bleak comedy of errors told from three perspectives, Kenya Márquez's feature debut is a quirky murder mystery, subverting expectations at each twist and turn. Ramona, an overindulgent mother to her lazy middle-aged son, panics after he fails to come home for their nightly meal of canned soup. A paranoid wreck, Ramona plays detective, soon suspecting oddball forensic enthusiast Genero (Damián Alcázar, THE LAST COMMANDANT, 2011 AFI Latin American Film Festival) might be responsible —he's always hanging out at the city morgue she now checks daily. Audience Award Winner, 2011 Morelia Film Festival; Opera Prima Grand Jury Prize, 2012 Miami Film Festival.
