Ruth Caudeli’s debut EVA + CANDELA is a thoughtful and beautifully orchestrated exploration of a couple striving to build an unconventional relationship free of the inevitable pains of transformation, longing, and dissatisfaction. Eva (Silvia Varón) is a passionate and ambitious actress who meets the equally strong willed Candela (Alejandra Lara) on a film set. The two are drawn together by their shared professional ambitions, magnetic chemistry, and desire to build a relationship impenetrable to the effects of the outside world and the monotony they look down on in ‘conventional’ couples.

Yet it is these very same qualities that test the strength of their bond, as the pair cycles through phases of infatuation, lust, tenderness, and ultimately the dreaded comfort of routine. In EVA + CANDELA Caudeli delicately and intensely explores the effects of time on relationships, questioning whether or not routine and the everyday is really the enemy of passion.

Watch OUT West

The Way OUT West Film Festival returns to Albuquerque Friday, Oct. 12 to Thursday, Oct. 18. Formerly known as the Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, this international showcase for features, documentaries and shorts has been running since 2003. The opening night Showcase Film (playing Oct. 12 at 7pm) is Matt Tyrnauer’s documentary Studio 54, which charts the rise and fall of New York’s legendarily hedonistic disco hotspot Studio 54. That’s followed (at 9:30pm) by a screening of John Waters’ 1981 cult film Polyester, starring Divine and Tab Hunter. 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).
