Co-presented by the Consulate General and Promotion Center of the Argentine Republic in Los Angeles. Sponsored by LAN Airlines, Wines of Argentina and W Hollywood

November 17 - 19, 2011, at the Egyptian Theatre

The 10th annual Argentina New Cinema series returns with another impressive lineup, opening with Argentina box office success and surefire crowdpleaser MY FIRST WEDDING, about one couple's hilariously disastrous "Big Day," starring Daniel Handler and Natalia Oreiro. This year's series is proud to present Argentina’s official Oscar submission for Best Foreign-Language Film, Fernando Spiner's Western throwback to the brutal glories of Peckinpah and Hill, ABALLAY! Many Los Angeles premieres are also in store: Santiago Mitre's THE STUDENT, about a young man (Esteban Lamothe) who gets in over his head with campus politics; Miguel Cohan’s critically lauded NO RETURN, about the unpredictable aftermath of a hit-and-run; and Sergio Teubal's THE FINGER, starring Gabriel Goity as a wolfish politician running for councilor against his ex-opponent's amputated digit.

All films are in Spanish with English subtitles.

Series compiled by Belén García Alcat and Pablo Maseda, with the assistance of Gwen Deglise. Program notes by Beth Hanna.
