Festival of New Spanish Cinema 2014
UNIT 7 [Grupo 7]
In person: filmmaker Alberto Rodríguez on Apr 3.
The drug problem in Seville is spiraling out of control as the city prepares to host the 1992 World Expo. With mounting pressure from the government to clean up the city, an overworked group of cops, Unit 7, starts to write their own rules. They sell dope for cash and information, padding their bank accounts and arrest records. Soon, they become local celebrities, poster boys for a new tough-on-crime era in Seville. But their brutal tactics draw press attention and the local drug lords plot their revenge. A dark and pulse-pounding neo-noir, this film asks if the end truly justifies the bloody means. Winner, Best New Actor, Best Supporting Actor, 2013 Goya Awards.
