Leo’s Room (El Cuarto de Leo), the first film from OFCS member Enrique Buchichio, a director as well as a critic, will have its U.S. premiere Wednesday, January 20, at the New York’s Museum of Modern Art as part of the Global Lens 2010 series of The Global Film Initiative.
Global Lens, now in its seventh year, opens at MOMA and other locations in New York before embarking on a yearlong tour of more than thirty-five cities across the United States and Canada. The 2010 program includes films from Algeria, China, India, Iran, Mexico, Peru, Serbia, South Africa, Uruguay, and Vietnam.
Leo’s Room, Uruguay’s entry in the series, had its world premiere last September at the San Sebastian International Film Festival, and has been on the road since then, participating in the official selection of film festivals including Biarritz (France), Havana (Cuba), and Marrakech (Morocco). Following its U.S. premiere in New York, Leo’s Room will be screened next March at the Miami International Film Festival.
