Best of the Fests

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

“Carried by a defiant refusal to play by the rules that have been set for it.”

“Shows formidable filmmaking skill”
LA Times

“One of the most breathtaking feature debuts in recent memory.”

With a mix of mysticism, sexuality, and religious fervor, filmmaker Nathalie Álvarez Mesén redefines the genre of magical realism in her debut feature. A breakout performance from first time actress Wendy Chinchilla Araya (Clara) and an intricately woven narrative all make CLARA SOLA a remarkable new release.
