Corazón de Mezquite (Mexico, 2019) drama directed by Ana Laura Calderón. The story of Lucía, a girl who fights for her dream against her tradition and how she will manage to get closer to her father and find her place in her community. The channel also programs Un Retiro para Enamorarse (Peru, 2023), with director Jesús Alvarez Betancourt and starring Andrea Luna and Juan Carlos Torres. This comedy poses situations that occur when sometimes we feel that everything is lost, then love takes care of sending us a signal that changes our life forever. Another of the premieres this month is the film La Inocencia (Spain, 2020), a film nominated for the Goya Awards, winner of Gaudi Awards and the San Sebastián and Valladolid Festivals, directed by Lucia Alemany and starring Carmen Arrufat, Laia Marull and Sergi Lopez. This drama tells the story of Lis, a girl who dreams of becoming a circus artist and escaping from her town, even though she knows that to achieve it she will have to face her parents. Lis flirts with a boy, a few years older than her. When the neighbors start to whisper about this relationship, Lis is forced to keep it a secret, so that her parents do not find out. Finally, ViendoMovies premieres El Cuaderno de Sara, a drama directed by Norberto López Amado. The film has as its main theme the exposure of the war that is currently taking place in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The nature of this conflict is based on the system of new wars in which the parties involved in it are mainly based not on political interests in the first instance, but behind there is a bid for the obtaining and exploitation of certain resources.
In the month of November, ViendoMovies continues with its cycles of talent from Spanish cinema, this time celebrating the career of actor Alex García, on Sundays in November at 9pm. On these weekend days of November, the film LITUS (Spain 2019) is presented, a 2019 comedy-drama written by Marta Buchaca that adapts her homonymous play. The film is directed by Dani de la Orden and stars Álex García, Belén Cuesta, Adrián Lastra and Quim Gutiérrez. Litus is the story of Toni, who reunites his friends after the death of Litus.

What was supposed to be a meeting to talk about Litus, becomes the perfect occasion to discover the most intimate secrets and all the emotions. Part of the cycle is also Hasta que la Boda nos Separe (Spain, 2020), directed by Dani de la Orden. Marina is a thirty-something who makes a living organizing weddings. Unlike her clients, she enjoys a life without ties or commitments, until one night she meets Carlos, one more affair for her and a moment of weakness for him. Because he has a girlfriend.
