ONLINE SALES HAVE NOW CLOSED -

Join us for SLAFF's legendary Opening Night Fiesta featuring live band 'Los Pibes' (The Kids!) bringing together some of Sydney's finest Latino musicians. A world-class, fun party band playing authentic Afro-Latin styles to dance your socks off, topped by DJ Willie Sabor & friends spinning your favourite classics Salsa, Bachata, Merengue and more!
After the film, courtesy buses will whisk you away from Dendy to the Fiesta at Cafe del Mar in Sydney's iconic Darling Harbour, where a complimentary drink awaits you.
Media superstars, thieves, heroines, teenage girls. The “Niñas Araña” resent their meagre existence in “Toma de Peñalolén”, a shantytown outside Santiago. Out of boredom, desire and with a bit of luck, they take hold of their destinies by breaking into wealthy apartments to steal all the luxuries they crave. Inspired by actual events, Niñas Araña is a tongue in cheek commentary on dreams, class, and unfulfilled expectations in contemporary Chile.
Nominated: 2017 Huelva Latin American Film Festival Best New Director.
