Broadsheet Trailer Park: Viva




What you may need to know:

1. A Cuban drag queen (Héctor Medina) clashes with his estranged father (Jorge Perugorría) over his lifestyle.

2. Paddy Breathnach’s film was shortlisted for this years’ Best Foreign Language Oscar, but missed out on a nomination.

3. Viva was the closing gala film at the Dublin Film Festival back in February, and went on to win the audience award.

4. Trailer Park favourite I Went Down (1997) remains stubbornly difficult to track down.

5. But Shrooms (2007) is available on Blu Ray. It’s a world gone mad.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Cuban miss crisis.

Release Date:  August 19.
