THE MYSTERY OF HAPPINESS
EL MISTERIO DE LA FELICIDAD
2014, Strand Releasing, 92 min, Argentina, Brazil, Dir: Daniel Burman

From acclaimed director Daniel Burman (LOST EMBRACE) comes a joyful story about love, friendship and the pursuit of happiness. Santiago (Guillermo Francella) and Eugenio (Fabian Arenillas) are best friends and business partners who run a thriving electronics store together. One day, Eugenio disappeared. Perplexed, Santiago and Eugenio’s wife, Laura (Ines Estevez) embark on a journey to find Eugenio. Burman's highest-grossing outing there to date. In Spanish with English subtitles.


LOCK CHARMER
EL CERRAJERO
2014, Memento Films, 77 min, Argentina, Dir: Natalia Smirnoff

A Grand Jury Prize nominee at the Sundance Film Festival, this charming drama explores the human need for direction by employing a touch of magic realism. The “Smoke Days” of 2008 in Buenos Aires leave Sebastian (Esteban Lamothe) with an unusual ability to see into peoples’ lives as he fixes their locks. The commitment-phobic locksmith is also dealing with a pregnant girlfriend and an unexpected house guest, and his strange new power may be the key to putting his own life in order. In Spanish with English subtitles.
