Geraldine Chaplin’s ‘Sand Dollars’ to Open AFI Latin American Festival

Geraldine Chaplin’s “Sand Dollars” has been set as the opening night film for the AFI Latin American Film Festival on Sept. 17 at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, Md.

The film, set in the Dominican Republic, is directed by Laura Amelia Guzmán and Israel Cárdenas. Chaplin stars as a wealthy foreign tourist who falls in love with a much-younger local woman.

Trash,” starring Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara, has been selected as the Oct. 7 closing night film. The movie is directed by Stephen Daldry from Richard Curtis’ script, which follows three trash-picking boys from Rio de Janeiro who team up with two American missionaries to uncover political corruption.

Other screenings will include Kristen Wiig’s comedy “Nasty Baby” from Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Silva; Pablo Larraín’s “The Club,” which won the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival; “Ixcanul” from Guatemala’s Jayro Bustamante; and Spanish thriller “Marshland,” directed by Alberto Rodríguez and winner of 10 Goya Awards.
