ARGENTINA: NEW CINEMA 2014
Double Feature! Los Angeles Premieres!
REFUGIADO / THE PRINCESS OF FRANCE
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Consulate General and Promotion Center of the Argentine Republic in Los Angeles.
REFUGIADO
2014, Memento Films, 90 min, Argentina, Columbia, France, Poland, Dir: Diego Lerman

The specter of domestic violence runs throughout this absorbing drama from director Diego Lerman even though the abusive husband remains unseen. After her 8-year-old son (Sebastián Molinaro) discovers her unconscious from a beating in their Buenos Aires apartment, Laura (Julieta Diaz) flees with the boy through a network of shelters that she hopes will lead to safety in the countryside. A Director’s Fortnight selection at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.


THE PRINCESS OF FRANCE
LA PRINCESA DE FRANCIA
2014, Cinema Guild, 70 min, Argentina, Dir: Matías Piñeiro

Writer-director Matías Piñeiro revisits the Shakespeare-inspired territory of his last two films with Julián Larquier Tellarini playing Victor, a theater director hoping to mount a radio production of Love’s Labour’s Lost. As in the Bard’s famous comedy, Victor wants to focus on work rather than women, but that’s easier said than done as aspiring actresses and past and present girlfriends swirl around him. Along with Tellarini, this well-crafted romantic rondelay features such Piñeiro regulars as María Villar and Agustina Muñoz. In Spanish with English subtitles.
