The Other Son (El otro hijo)

Latin Wave

Filmmaker Juan Sebastián Quebrada in attendance.

Federico and his brother Simon enjoy their teenage years until Simon’s tragic death from a balcony fall at a party. Amidst his family’s turmoil, Federico tries to maintain normalcy while struggling to grieve, and finds solace in bonding with Simon’s girlfriend, Laura. Juan Sebastián Quebrada’s auspicious second feature is an emotionally charged, semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama that delicately delves into themes of grief and hope.

Juan Sebastián Quebrada studied at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires and specialized at the ESCAC in Barcelona. His graduate work, Días extraños, premiered in the international competition at BAFICI in 2015 before being selected and awarded at festivals such as Munich, Toulouse, and Cartagena. His first professional short film, La casa del árbol, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2017.
