Preview by Jack Foley

RICARDO Darín (star of Oscar-winning The Secret in Their Eyes) and Martina Gusman (award-winning star of Lion’s Den) give stunning performances in the gripping and highly acclaimed thriller Carancho (The Vulture), a thrilling nocturnal journey into the darker side of Buenos Aires life, where vultures prey in the night and an unusual love story will form that is sure to set hearts racing through to the film’s powerful finale.

The latest from leading Argentinean director Pablo Trapero (Lion’s Den, Born & Bred, Rolling Family) Carancho (Argentina’s official submission for the 83rd Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film category) had a strong theatrical release and successful presence on the festival circuit, most notably with Official Selection’s at both Cannes and London Film Festivals.

Sosa (Ricardo Darín) is an ambulance-chasing personal injury attorney with questionable ethics. Lujan (Martina Gusman) is a young, idealistic country doctor new to the city.

After Lujan and Sosa’s paths repeatedly cross, the two form an unlikely romance that is threatened by Sosa’s turbulent past. With traffics accidents as the number one cause of death in Argentina, bodies are currency and a black market strives to get rich from the personal tragedies that litter the streets.
