Q&A with actress and producer Adriana Alvarez

The sixth film by Mexican-Guatemalan filmmaker Julio Hernández Cordón (I Promise You Anarchy, ND/NF 2016), and his first shot in Costa Rica, is a rakish slacker movie that follows rebellious girls Sole (Adriana Alvarez) and Ana (Natalia Arias). While biking around San José, and planning to create a vintage cab company, they find something inside the trunk of a car that they’d rather immediately forget. Lightning Falls Behind, featuring playful and fluid camerawork, is a prime example of the kind of recent Central American cinema that has delighted viewers on the international film circuit. N.Y.
