SUN NOV 11, 2018

Thank you again to the extraordinary team at The Castro Theatre.

A feature film is an art form that merits, in fact that must be viewed with, a large screen and proper sound--and the Castro offers just that!

Thank you to Aaron Cole, Tim Stookey, and Leslie Cole for all your support and for setting up a pop-up bar at the Castro Theatre for patrons to enjoy a glass of wine before the show.
Silvio Caiozzi's La luna en el espejo (The Moon in the Mirror).

This film was Chile's submission to compete for the best-foreign language nomination at the 1990's Academy Awards and that same year famous actress in Chile, Gloria Münchmeyer, received the Best Actress award at the 47th International Film Festival of Venice.

The screenplay is based on a short story by acclaimed Chilean writer José Donoso. The film script was co-written by Caiozzi and Donoso.

Why Silvio Caiozzi for your first Cine Chileno festival?

In 1991, living in New York, I took on to producing a TV special hoping to sell it to Chilean television. I proposed to cover Joseph Papp’s Festival Latino in New York . I never sold the show to Chilean TV, but Joseph Papp invited me to watch the Chilean film, La Luna en el Espejo ( The Moon in the Mirro r), and I was mesmerized by Caiozzi’s work.

Thank You Molaundo Jones
