Argentinian director Pablo Trapero‘s latest effort, Elefante Blanco is believed to be one of the films announced tomorrow as part of the Official Selection of the Festival de Cannes. This would be the second time that the filmmaker has a film show at the festival, as in 2010 Carancho competed in the Un Certain Regard category. Elefante Blanco reunites Trapero with Carancho star Ricardo Darin (Carancho, The Secret in Their Eyes), who plays the role of a priest named Julian in charge of a parish located in an unincorporated slum called Villa Virgen. Jeremie Renier (The Kid with a Bike) plays Geronimo, a priest who has dedicated his life to helping the neediest and is a friend of Julian. Martina Gusman (Carancho) rounds out the cast as the social worker Luciana.
Although there have been some teaser trailers released over the last few months, none of them have been English friendly. One such example is the 28 second teaser which Twitch highlighted recently. Most of these teasers are directed at Spanish-speaking audiences, given that the film is scheduled to open in Argentina and Spain on May 25th, 2012. Due to the fact that the official trailer for the film was released in those markets last week, we took it upon ourselves to provide an English friendly version. Check it out:
