THE CLEANER [El limpiador]
2013 Oscar Submission for Best Foreign Language Film, Peru
Eusebio (Víctor Prada, OCTUBRE) is a quiet man, a forensic cleaner living his routine and solitary life even as a devastating and mysterious epidemic sweeps Lima, keeping him busier than ever at work. As the city crumbles around him, Eusebio discovers a scared 8-year-old and reluctantly agrees to take him in, hoping he may yet find the boy's family. The debut feature of writer/director Adrián Saba is a haunting, thought-provoking vision of a dystopian future, "an oddball 'fantasy' film, brimming with memorable images." –Mark Adams, Screen Daily. New Voices/New Visions Award, 2013 Palm Springs Film Festival; Special Mention, New Director's Award, San Sebastian Film Festival; Official Selection, 2013 Seattle, San Francisco Film Festivals.
