“The Strong Ones”

“The Strong Ones”

At NewFest 2020, the 32nd Annual New York LGBTQ+ Film Festival, Alum Omar Zúñiga’s The Strong Ones will have it's New York Premiere in the International Narrative feature competition.

As NewFest puts it, “The Strong Ones tells the romantic saga of a fisherman and an architect in the beautiful landscape of Southern Chile as they find love at the edge of the world. This confidently directed festival favorite...spotlights the searing sexiness and electric chemistry of the two charismatic leads (Samuel González and Antonio Altamirano), while impressive cinematography highlights the majestic landscapes. This gentle and intimate love tale is the perfect selection for a date night with your own special someone, or perhaps a lover-to-be.” The film was recently awarded the Grand Jury Prize for Best International Narrative Feature, and Audience Award for Narrative Feature at OutFest Los Angeles. 

NewFest2020 will run from Oct 16-27.
