ANITA



Renowned filmmaker Marcos Carnevale tells the story of a terrorist bombing in Buenos Aires that upends the life of a girl with Down syndrome and propels her on a poignant journey. Anita Feldman (an extraordinary debut performance by Alejandra Manzo, an actress with Down syndrome) is lovingly cared for by her mother (Oscar-nominee Norma Aleandro, Autumn Sun, RJFF 2002), and spends weekdays helping her run a small stationary store in their Jewish neighborhood. Everything changes when a car bomb explodes outside the AMIA Jewish Community Center. Disoriented in the wake of the attack, Anita wanders the city in search of her missing mother, touching the lives of those around her.

Best Picture and Audience Award winner at the 2009 Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival.
