BETIBÚ
2014, Latido, 100 min, Argentina, Spain, Dir: Miguel Cohan

When a wealthy businessman is found murdered in his home, the local newspaper puts three writers on the case - a jaded veteran reporter (Daniel Fanego), a brash new arrival on the crime beat and famed mystery novelist Nurit “Betibú” Iscar (an excellent Mercedes Morán) - who unearth secrets buried for decades as they follow the trail of clues. Writer-director Cohan’s complex characters and sharp dialog keep this thriller moving at the snappy pace of a vintage film noir. In Spanish with English subtitles.


NATURAL SCIENCES
CIENCIAS NATURALES
2014, Outsider Pictures, 70 min, Argentina, Dir: Matias Lucchesi

Director Matias Lucchesi’s feature debut earned the Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus International Jury at the Berlin International Film Festival. 12-year-old Lila (Paula Hertzog) is struggling with a lot of questions - most of them about her long-absent father. Enlisting a sympathetic teacher (Paola Barrientos), she sets out from her school in rural Argentina in search of answers. In Spanish with English subtitles.
