Following on its honorable mention in the Uruguay International Film Festival in April 2019 (which included a shout-out to “the colossal actress Tallie Medel”), Fourteen will have its Uruguay theatrical premiere at the Cinemateca Uruguaya in Montevideo on Thu, Jan 16, 2020. Fourteen screens in Sala 1 at 5 and 7 pm nightly through Wed, Jan 22, 2020.
Fourteen will be the closing film in a series of contemporary independent films at the University of Guadalajara’s Casa del Arte in Ciudad Guzmán, Jalisco, about 80 miles from Guadalajara. The screening is on Fri Jan 31, 2020 at 7 pm, and is open to the public.
