14th Latin American Film Festival in Australia

El Peso de la Ley (The Heavy Hand of the Law) is a film from Argentina directed by Fernan Miras.

Gloria is a lawyer who throughout her career has never been able to defend someone who was not guilty. Her new client seems to be not so different: a man accused of rape in a small town where no-one believes his story.

The 14th Latin American Film Festival in Australia is a non-profit collaboration between the Latin American embassies in Australia and the University of Melbourne. For two weeks we will present a showcase of cinema from across the whole region.
