The Apostate

featuring

Álvaro Ogalla, Vicky Peña, Marta Larralde,

Looking for a fresh start, perennial philosophy flunk-out and sexually frustrated Madrid thirty-something Gonzalo (Álvaro Ogalla) demands the Catholic Church relinquish its symbolic hold on his misspent life by removing his name from the baptismal record. This canny, erotically charged comedy from the director of A Useful Life (SFIFF 2011) explores the romantic consequences of his actions and the authority figures that try to stop him.
