HBO Ibero-American Feature Film Award

Director Carlos Cuarón will be in attendance at the first In-Theater screening to participate in a post-screening Q&A.

Four dentists -- three men and a woman -- meet at a conference in the Riviera Maya. The men all want the woman, but she has something else in mind. As they all run away from their own history of pain, they spend a crazy weekend together filled with jealousy, envy and excess on a tiny island in the Mexican Caribbean that will mark their lives forever.

A story of friends and colleagues who, seeking to evade their realities in a tropical paradise, will test their ties and their knowledge of themselves in a wicked black comedy.


Carlos Cuarón is a filmmaker from Mexico. Amalgama is his 4th feature film as director after Rudo y Cursi (08), Sugar Kisses (13) and Vidas Violentas (15). He has also written several classic films including Solo con tu Pareja (91) and Y Tu Mama Tambien (01).

Sponsored by HBO and by FlixLatino and ViendoMovies available with Xfinity.
