"VIDEOFILIA (AND OTHER VIRAL SYNDROMES)"

Rotterdam’s Tiger Award Winner,
Opens Friday, December 2 in New York City,
Followed by Los Angeles and San Francisco 

Brooklyn-based distribution company Factory 25 is proud to announce the theatrical release of Peru’s 2017 Academy Award Submission for Best Foreign-Language Film "Videofilia (and Other Viral Syndromes)" by Juan Daniel F. Molero.

Winner of the Tiger Award for Best Film at the Rotterdam Film Festival, "Videofilia (and Other Viral Syndromes)" opens on Dec. 2 at Spectacle Theater in New York City, followed by week runs at Arena Cinemain Los Angeles starting Dec. 7, and at The Roxie in San Francisco on Jan. 6, with additional screenings across the country through winter. 

The film will also be available digitally in February via iTunes, Vimeo, Amazon, VUDU, X-Box, Sony Playstation and other many other digital outlets.

"Videofilia (and Other Viral Syndromes)" begins as a teenage misfit spends her first days out of school slacking and experimenting with drugs and cyberspace. 

She meets Junior online. He's an aspiring amateur porn dealer into conspiracy theories and is also convinced that the Mayan Apocalypse is happening. 

Once they meet in the 'real world,' a series of bizarre events unfold in this contemporary non-love story that portrays a post-modern Lima as a glitchy computer virus full of corruption, psychedelia and ancient ruins.

Molero’s exhilarating debut fiction film is a playful mashup of internet cafes, slackers, not-so-innocent schoolgirls, amateur porn, Google Glass, acid trips, and guinea pigs as extras in an exorcism.

The U.S. theatrical run of Videofilia (and Other Viral Syndromes) is made possible by Marca Perú. Additional support is provided by Trade Commission of Peru, New York and Los Angeles; Cinema Tropical; and LatinLover.
