Apnea

The bathroom of a house is the place where Martelli sets her characters: 6 year-old Claire and her Ecuadorian nanny María. With a very precise acting direction and almost no need for dialogue, the action is centered on the bathroom ritual, while the protagonists wait for the arrival of Claire’s mother. The director focuses on a series...

Invierno

Winter starts during the summer –a Chilean summer of intense heat and intense activity for Alejo Cortés, who writes nonstop what will become his second novel. The publishing date for Caída libre (“Free Fall”) is six months away, and the literary world is expecting it with equal amounts of expectation and morbidity. I...

Jaco

This documentary explores the almost mythical story of Jaco Pastorius, an electric bass pioneer, an invisible icon who was an enduring inspiration for artists like Robert Trujillo, producer of the film, but also Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell, Flea, Bootsy Collins and so many more. If you already know his name you are probably either also a bass pla...

La Once

It’s much easier to talk about young people than about old people,” John Cassavetes used to say. Because old age is not characterized by great adventures, but by the boredom caused by a sedentary life, like a waiting room for a dentist that wears a black tunic and holds a scythe. Maite Alberdi pays no attention to the words of the direc...

Llamas de nitrato

When Anna Karina broke in tears watching The Passion of Joan of Arc (in 1962’s My Life to Live), sixteen years had passed after Maria Falconetti’s death. The parallelisms that can be traced from that scene give us a small hint of the consequences the 1928 classic had on the lives of director Carl Theodor Dreyer and Falconetti herself: i...

No somos animales

Excuse me? Are you saying “we’re not animals”? Yes, we are, and Alejandro Agresti is the king of animals. A dog, let’s say, that can be fierce or a companion depending on the occasion, but whose peripheral vision encompasses everything. Because that way, like a beast, he made this film that is a kick in the table to everythi...

Ragazzi

How does a film like Ragazzi fit in Raúl Perrone’s filmography? How is the figure and work of Pasolini encompassed in the play of ghosts from this new stage in the career of the filmmaker from the locality of Ituzangó? Ragazzi is a film in two movements. The first one, freely inspired in Pasolini’s death/murder, narrates a...

Un importante preestreno

When we hear the voice of the farcical Miguel Paulino Tato unraveling his creed, or when many famous local distributors tell of the hilarious title changes of films for their local release, one understands that Calori’s film far surpasses its explicit purpose of being an oral and unlikely history of cinephilia, and that, while it’s at i...

UPA 2! El regreso

The films by “the kids from independent cinema” don’t usually have sequels, but UPA 2! has enough eccentricity and self-confidence to embark on such task. The kids from the first UPA! had received the Argentine Competition’s main award at Bafici 2007 –in 2015, they maintain their boldness and their ability to observe w...

Why?

An Israeli series of “love letters to cinema” drives this short that is precise and concise as possible. After being asked about a shot that changed his life, a filmmaker goes twenty years back in order to remember an episode of his time in the army: seeing Teorema. The fascination for the military, the tribal notion of virility, the ne...
