4X4
2019, 90 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Mariano Cohn

A box office hit in Argentina, this wild tale of crime and punishment was inspired by actual events. Peter Lanzani stars as Ciro, a petty thief in Buenos Aires who breaks into a 4x4 truck to steal its stereo system and gets caught inside. When the car phone rings, he picks it up – only to be told by the vehicle’s owner that he has soundproofed and polarized the interior so that no one will know someone is trapped inside. Dady Brieva costars as Ciro’s tormentor in a claustrophobic thriller from the director and writer behind THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN.


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.
