Argentina New Cinema


This is an Egyptian Theatre Exclusive!


Co-presented by the Consulate General and Promotion Center of the Argentine Republic in Los Angeles

The ninth annual New Argentine Cinema returns with another impressive lineup, including Argentina’s official Oscar submission for Best Foreign-Language Film, Pablo Trapero’s CARANCHO! Opening the series is the first of many Los Angeles premieres: BROTHER AND SISTER, Daniel Burman’s trenchant drama about dissimilar siblings coping with the death of their mother, and ROMPECABEZAS (directed by Natalia Smirnoff), which had an impressive debut at the Berlin International Film Festival 2010. Hector Olivera’s period piece EL MURAL tells the real-life story of Mexican muralist David Siqueiros constructing his masterpiece while in Argentina in the 1930s, and Rodrigo Grande’s sly comedy A MATTER OF PRINCIPLE looks at a humorous, ethical power struggle between two willful coworkers. Also in the mix are the fascinating documentaries MUNDO ALAS, an inspirational tale of a troupe of musicians with disabilities who tour Argentina led by popular singer and composer León Gieco, and TRACES AND MEMORY OF JORGE PRELORÁN, a beautiful portrait of one of Argentina’s most important documentarians.

Set in the 1930s, this lovely historical reconstruction serves as a testament to the creation of a masterpiece, while depicting the controversial private and public events that shaped its materialization. Known for his masterful filmmaking, Olivera’s film is "a tight, neatly written work," as hailed by the Buenos Aires Herald. [35mm] María Entraigues, who composed and sings one of the signature songs in A MATTER OF PRINCIPLE, will sing between films. Also attending is actor Arturo Goetz. Trailer | Buy Tickets
