ARGENTINA: NEW CINEMA 2018
Double Feature!
ANIMAL / OUR WAY TO THE SEA
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Consulate General and Promotion Center of the Argentine Republic in Los Angeles
Introduction to OUR WAY TO THE SEA by actor Federico Bal and producer Gabriel Sucari.
ANIMAL
2018, Film Factory Entertainment, 112 min, Argentina, Dir: Armando Bo

BIRDMAN’s Oscar-winning writer directs a wickedly ironic thriller that was a big box office hit in Argentina with more than a half-million admissions. Antonio (THE CLAN’s Guillermo Francella) has the perfect life: a loving family, a good job and a nice house. But that bubble bursts when he finds out he’s in urgent need of a kidney transplant. Antonio has always been a by-the-book kind of guy, but when all legal means for obtaining a kidney fall through, he turns to the black market, where he’s forced to the moral edge by a couple who put his desperation to the test.


World Premiere!

OUR WAY TO THE SEA
RUMBO AL MAR
2018, 87 min, Argentina, Dir: Ignacio Garassino

Living in Tucumán, 75-year-old Julio Pereyra (Santiago Bal) has always dreamed of visiting the coast, and after seeing his doctor, he realizes it’s either now or never. He hopes to enlist his errant son, Marcos (Federico Bal, the star’s real-life son), to take him by motorcycle; both Marcos and his by-the-books sister (Anita Martínez) are opposed to the idea. But before he reaches his final destination, Julio will have the opportunity to check several things off his bucket list in this emotionally resonant road movie.
