*SPANISH FILM CLUB *
All films in the Spanish Film Club series were made possible with the support of Pragda, SPAIN Arts & Culture, and the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain.
“The Fast and the Furious with wheelbarrows, Paraguayan action-thriller-romance hybrid 7 Boxes is a rollicking good time at the movies that offers breathtaking action and suspense, humor and appealing characters all in one visually flashy package”(Indiewire).
17 year old Victor, a porter in the market who aspires to become a famous actor is recruited to transport seven mysterious boxes in exchange for one hundred dollars. Unknowingly, Victor is involved in a crime of which he knows nothing: not the cause, nor the victim or perpetrator. The film takes the typical Hollywood shoot-‘em-up action drama and adds a gritty, indie flavor to the genre. It broke box office records in Paraguayan theaters (Remscla, 2014), won 28 different prizes and received a perfect rating of 100% from Rotten Tomatoes!
