ICNY and Havana Film Festival welcome Icaro Film Festival in New York City. For first time, filmgoers will have the opportunity to see the award winners of the most relevant film festivals in Central America. From September 15, 17 and 18th New Yorkers will have the opportunity to watch films that vary in genre, country and formats. Historically Central American countries produced fewer films than their neighbors from the North and South of the borders, a fact that has changed in the last fifeteen years thanks to initiatives like Casa Comal’s Icaro Film Festival. Held annually, this event has given the opportunity to young and emerging filmmakers from the seven countries, that are part of the Central American region to tell their own stories, built their own audiences and collect awards around the world during the process.Synopsis of the film "Agua fría de mar": A young Costa Rican couple on holiday discover Karina one evening, a seven-year-old girl, who has run away, yet the next morning, when they want to take her back to her camping parents, she has disappeared again. This leads to a confrontation between two women of different ages and social status in a spot that is ostensibly paradise.
