The AFI Latin American Film Festival is proud to open the 2017 festival with Ecuador's 2017 Oscar® Selection Such is Life in the Tropics [Sin Muertos No Hay Carnaval]. Sebastián Cordero (CRONICAS, EUROPA REPORT) crafts a thriller of Shakespearean proportions in this Guayaquil, Ecuador-set tale of greed, betrayal, forbidden romance and political intrigue. Emilio (artist-turned-actor Daniel Adum Gilbert, in his debut role) is a wealthy young man trying to evict the 250 families squatting on land inherited from his father. Promising to help him is Lisandro Andrés Crespo, CRONICAS), the squatters' self-appointed representative and an unapologetic social- climber. Painting a vivid portrait of Ecuador’s largest city, from its luxurious high-rises to its makeshift shacks, Cordero takes a searing look at economic disparity, corruption and the ordinary lives hanging in the balance.

The Opening Night screening will be followed by a Q&A with actor David Adum Gilbert and reception hosted by the Embassy of Ecuador in Washington, D.C.
