MY MASTERPIECE
MI OBRA MAESTRA
2018, 100 min, Argentina, Dir: Gastón Duprat

This wonderfully entertaining look at friendship pairs cranky, past-his-prime painter Renzo Nervi (Luis Brandoni) with his longtime dealer, Arturo Silva (Guillermo Francella), who is quite willing to cut ethical corners to keep his gallery running - even if it involves murder. Screenwriter Andres Duprat (the director’s brother and frequent collaborator) clearly knows the art world well and Cristina Nigro’s production design is fittingly eye-catching. “The actors are clearly having a ball. … The chemistry between the two men is completely believable, with their long-term relationship often complicated by matters of art and commerce.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.


THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN
EL CIUDADANO ILUSTRE
2016, 118 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Gastón Duprat, Mariano Cohn

Writer Daniel Mantovani (Oscar Martínez) left Argentina decades ago but still draws upon memories of his hometown for his books. After he wins the Nobel Prize, Daniel is invited to return to the place of his birth to accept a “Distinguished Citizen” award … and gets to see how far the little village has diverged from the fictional version he’s created of it. A laugh-filled look at how art and celebrity transform our lives.
