THE FILM

Sub Rosa is Krisstian de Lara's thesis film, a project he has been developing since May of 2012. Krisstian strive for a story that could be complex yet subtle and full of emotions. “I definitely wanted to make a serious story where characters faced complex situations due to their actions. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and do something I have never attempted to do before.” While Sub Rosa address some sensitive and taboo topics it does so in a professional and tasteful way. After all, this is a character driven story. It's a film made to tell a story that has not been told before.



THE STORY



Sub Rosa is the coming-of-age story of a male teenager who has grown up under the shadow of his authoritative father. Over the course of a single summer, events transpire which transform this boy into an adult who challenges his dad in very unorthodox ways.
