WRINKLES [Arrugas]
In person: graphic novelist Paco Roca at both shows!

Filmmaker Ignacio Ferreras brings Paco Roca's award-winning graphic novel to the big screen in this exquisitely rendered animated film, a moving story of friendship and loss. Suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's, Emilio is apprehensive about moving into a nursing home. Helping to smooth the transition is his roommate Miguel, a rascally Argentinean. Both sensitively told and refreshingly acerbic, WRINKLES smooths its challenging subject matter into an inspiring story with universal appeal. Best Animated Film, Best Adapted Screenplay, 2012 Goya Awards. Official Selection, 2011 San Sebastian Film Festival; 2012 Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
