Cannes 2017: 'La Familia' Review

Venezuelan filmmaker Gustavo Rondón Córdova makes his feature debut with La Familia, a stripped-down story about a father and son on the run after the kid brutally attacks another boy in self-defense. A portrait of modern-day Caracas as much as it is a family drama, the film suggests Córdova might be someone worth keeping an eye on. My review is live at Screen International.
