Join us after the screening on August 11 at 8:40pm EDT for a live Q&A with Directors Marcela Matta, Mauro Sarser, Executive Producers Nicolás Bottero, Gabriel Silva Gambglia as well as actresses Stefania Tortorella et Nenan Pelenur.

Gloria (Stefania Tortorella) needs an orgasm. According to her friend Sandra (Nenan Pelenur), it’s written all over her face. When was the last time she had one? She doesn’t know. She doesn’t know if she’s ever had one. So begins Marcela Matta and Mauro Sarser’s sophomore feature GHOSTING GLORIA, a film which blends genres – switching between horror, fantasy, offbeat comedy – all wrapped up in whimsical, somewhat unconventional and subversive, romance. Gloria’s problem with getting an orgasm is easily solved when she finds the right man. There is just one issue with her new love interest: he’s a ghost.

Much like the couple’s first film LOS MODERNOS (2016), GHOSTING GLORIA concerns itself with the complexities of modern romance, this time moving beyond the realities of the city-based media world seen in their debut, to the fantastical realm of otherworldly matchmaking. But what lends the narrative real spark is the film’s sex-positive spin on the theme of finding Mr. Right, its boisterous moments of mindblowing (sometimes wholly inappropriate) erotic comedy, as well as Gloria’s rich wider world, which includes a real love of literature (littered with numerous winks for book lovers), her ever supportive, gloriously promiscuous, Rossy de Palmaesque friend Sandra, and her fastidious bookstore boss (played by co-director Sarser himself). If you ever wanted to know what something like Pedro Almodovar’s TIE ME UP! TIE ME DOWN! would look like if it was crossed with THE ENTITY, here is the place to find out. – Kat Ellinger
