ELENA arrives in USA
Austin, Texas. The city is a party. From last Friday to next March 17, a set of film, interactive and music festivals take place at traditional and famous South by Southwest Festival. ELENA is one of the feature selected (from over 2,000 submissions) and will make its debut in USA this Sunday at 8:45PM, in Violet Crown 1&2.
ELENA will be screened in category “Visions”. Director Petra Costa proved to be honored and excited to know that. It is already a kind of approval since the category is described this way in SXSW website: “Audacious, risk-taking artists in the new cinema landscape that demonstrate raw innovation and creativity in documentary and narrative filmmaking.”
