In "Anchor and Hope" Carlos Marques-Marcet explores the nuances that both keep relationships together and tear them apart.

In ANCHOR AND HOPE Carlos Marques-Marcet explores the nuances that both keep relationships together and tear them apart. Set against the charming backdrop of London’s canals with a delightful soundtrack, the young Eva (Oona Chaplin from GAME OF THRONES) and Kat (Natalia Tena from HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS) seem to live a carefree and idyllic life. After a funeral for their cat, overseen by Eva’s bohemian mother Germaine (played by the incomparable Geraldine Chaplin), Eva suddenly decides that a baby is the perfect anchor for their nomadic life. Kat is visibly reluctant about the commitment and lifestyle change, and Eva’s plans seem to accelerate with the arrival of Kat’s friend Roger.

After a drunken night together, Kat wakes up to a hangover and the news of Roger and Eva’s plans to have a child together. The trio’s attempt at unconventional family-making reveals unspoken tensions as Roger and Eva’s enthusiasm leaves Kat on the sidelines. This fissure and the exposure of their true feelings tears Ava and Kat apart. Marques-Marcet’s feature strives to eschew both the predictability of rom-coms and a narrow minded view of what families look like in the 21st century. Ultimately, this film offers hope for the unconventional family of three.

The closing night film (Oct. 18 at 8:45pm) is Ondi Timoner’s biopic Mapplethrope, starring Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”) as the controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. In between you can choose international dramas like Eva + Candela (Cómo te Llamas?) from Colombia, documentaries like the feminist filmmaker chronicle Dykes, Camera, Action! and queer comedies such as the French rom-com Kiss Me! The popular shorts compilations “Fun in Girl’s Shorts” and “Where the Boys Are” also make a return appearance. Tickets are $11 per film or $9 for Way OUT West members. Four-film punchcards run $40, eight-film punchcards are $75, and $125 gets you a full festival pass. All screenings take place at Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE).
