TIFF Ajax Film Circuit presents PAPI CHULO
Friday, November 1 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10.00
Papi Chulo, is a poignant and very timely story of two worlds colliding in the same great city — and the delightfully unlikely friendship that emerges.
Devastated with heartbreak, Los Angeles TV weatherman Sean (Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart, television’s White Collar) has an on-air meltdown in the midst of predicting a heat wave. The station insists he take a sabbatical and his friends urge him to find someone to talk to, but Sean opts to swap self-care for home improvement. From a huddle of men seeking day labour outside the hardware store, Sean hires Ernesto (a brilliantly deadpan Alejandro Patiño, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) to paint his deck.
Their initially straightforward business arrangement rapidly extends to strolling and boating excursions, during which Sean tells Ernesto all about himself – despite the fact that the two don’t share a common language.
