Curtains of rain spoil the vacation that divorced dad Alberto has eagerly arranged at a hot springs; because he seldom sees his kids, he refuses to allow anything to ruin his plans. Nothing could be worse for teenage Lucía than to be cooped up indoors with Dad and little brother Frederico. But the springs are closed until further notice, and Lucía’s adolescent rebellion clashes against her father’s efforts toward quality family time. A taut, wondrous gem, TANTA AGUA captures the emotions of this universal domestic transition in the most naturalistic sense, even given the meteorological impediments.
Ana Guevara and Leticia Jorge were both born in Montevideo, in 1980 and 1981 respectively. They became friends when they were students of Communication at the Human Sciences Department of the Universidad Católica del Uruguay. They started writing together and in 2006 made EL CUARTO DEL FONDO, their first short film, of whose production they were in charge of under the name Medio Limón Films. In 2008 they made their second short film, CORREDORES DE VERANO, having by then partnered up with Control Z Films. Both short films were selected by and exhibited at film festivals worldwide. TANTA AGUA is their first feature film.
