A highlight from Los Angeles’s 2018 Outfest, Colombia’s Eva + Candela is a portrait of two strong, independent women: Candela, a female director and Eva, the star of her first film, drawn together by a powerful attraction and shared ambition.
Their youth, desire and enthusiastic energy create a seductive and fascinating intimacy. But over time, their relationship evolves, swinging from infatuation to sensuality, which turns to tenderness, and then routine. They never wanted to be a conventional couple, and yet that’s just what they’ve become. Can Eva and Candela withstand the inevitable effects of time to overcome the metamorphosis of their relationship?
Written and directed by Ruth Caudeli, and starring Silvia Varón and Alejandra Lara, Eva + Candela explores a relationship bound and inevitably ended by the same thing: their dreams.
