ARGENTINA: NEW CINEMA 2014
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Consulate General and Promotion Center of the Argentine Republic in Los Angeles.

Following the success of previous years, our Argentina: New Cinema series returns with some of the best films to emerge from Buenos Aires and beyond in 2013 and 2014. The annual event always draws large crowds from both the local Argentine community and foreign-language film fans, and the 13th installment promises to be no different, with an impressive lineup including several Los Angeles premieres.

This has been a very good year for films from Argentine directors, with four of them screening at Cannes (Damian Szifron’s WILD TALES, Lisandro Alonso’s JAUJA, Pablo Fendrik’s EL ARDOR and Pablo Lerman’s REFUGIADO) and four more appearing at the Berlin Film Festival (Benjamin Naishtat’s HISTORY OF FEAR, Celina Murga’s THE THIRD SIDE OF THE RIVER, Ines Maria Barrionuevo’s ATLÁNTIDA and Matias Lucchesi’s NATURAL SCIENCES).

At the Egyptian, we will be showing some of the finest recent Argentine cinema, ranging from thrillers (BETIBU) to comedies (THE PRINCESS OF FRANCE) and dramas about family (NATURAL SCIENCES), romance and friendship (THE MYSTERY OF HAPPINESS, and the need to find direction in life (Sundance favorite LOCK CHARMER). The powerful Cannes Film Festival selection REFUGIADO adds to the breadth and depth of selections. Don’t miss the opportunity to see South America’s first home-grown film industry come of age on the big screen!

All films are in Spanish with English subtitles unless otherwise noted.

Series compiled by Pablo Maseda and Gwen Deglise. Program notes by John Hagelston.
