SEALED CARGO

Carga Sellada (original title)

 

A cargo of toxic waste from abroad is discovered in a small Andean village. The government decides to silence complaints by secretly moving the waste in an old steam train to be thrown across the Chilean border.

An ambitious police captain, an old anarchist train conductor, three policemen and a runaway girl face illegal blockades and confrontations: people from other towns do not want the train with its poisonous cargo crossing their land. The three-day trip turns into three weeks.

The press turns it into a media scandal. The government turns its back on the mission. The train and its passengers are abandoned to their fate in the Bolivian highlands.

THE WINNER

El Ganador (original title)

 

In the Mexican town of Oaxaca, Adalberto's wife, Rosario, slams the door on their twenty-year marriage and leaves to live with her sister in Australia. The day of her departure, her nearly-blind old uncle - in a hospice for the dying - wins the lottery. Misogynist Adalberto puts on a wig and a dress and 'becomes' Rosario in hopes of inheriting the money. But the uncle's notary finds another niece and the newly-minted 'Rosario' must prove herself the more deserving heir. Ambition gets sidetracked as Adalberto attempts to win the contest by caring for an abandoned child and ends up playing grandmother to a six-year-old version of himself.
