La Loteria by Shahir Daud

A young man waits to board a plane to America... and recalls the 3 biggest regrets in his life.

Augusto is a good-natured but aimless young man adrift in his life in the Dominican Republic. But an opportunity opens up when he wins the green card lottery to emigrate to the U.S.

But that choice opens up a dilemma: what will happen with his lovely girlfriend of six months, Savanna?

New Zealand director Shahir Daud crafts a charming, relatable story about the pull of love, filled with beautiful camerawork and skillful acting performances that capture the dizzying, logic-defying nature of passionate love.

This romantic drama swings from the giddiest moments of romance to moving moments of genuine emotion. The cast is multicultural — as is the production itself, which was filmed in New York with Puerto Rican and Swedish lead actors.

But “La Loteria” shows just how universal and powerful love is — and how it makes everything possible.
