DIAMANTINO d. Daniel Schmidt & Gabriel Abrantes, 2018 + Surprise Short presented by Jellied Reels at The Castle Cinema (10 FEB 21:00).

“A tongue in cheek tour through sports biopic, political satire, sci-fi experimentation and fluffy pink puppies. Diamantino is a burlesque genre mashup that a simple plot summary could nowhere near do justice. Riffing on an uncanny selection of the world’s modern woes, Daniel Schmidt and Gabriel Abrantes’ prize winning film will certainly kick the January blues into touch.” (Jellied Reels).
