Welcome back to my personal favorite feature, Movies At Random! If you haven’t heard, Media Services is operating out of the Information Desk for the summer, which means I can’t close my eyes, wander down the gemtrac, and pull out the weirdest looking DVD. No, instead, we’re letting the Google Random Number Generator determine our summer picks.

Today’s google-generated random movie isĀ Paloma De Papel (HU DVD 4061), a Peruvian coming of age film.

Here’s our summary:

Paloma de Papel recounts the harrowing coming-of-age story of Juan as he struggles to survive poverty, corruption, and violence when Shining Path guerrillas sweep through and force the helpless youngster into their ranks.

There’s not really a great trailer for this one, so you’ll have to content yourself with this still:

Looks interesting.
