BROTHER AND SISTER

DIRECTOR: Daniel Burman - ARGENTINA

The love-hate relationship between two 60-something siblings provides for both wryly amusing and heart-warming drama. When their mother falls ill and dies, scheming Susana (Graciela Borges) and timid, altruistic Marcos (Antonio Gasalla) are thrown back into each other’s lives after a long period of separation. They need each other but, unable to heal old wounds, also despise each other. When dominant Susana sells their mother’s apartment—Marcos’s home too—it’s a less-than-kind attempt to undermine his happiness. Marcos’s decision to finally start living his own life catalyzes when his sister forces him to leave Buenos Aires for Uruguay for a dubious real-estate...

CARANCHO

DIRECTOR: Pablo Trapero - ARGENTINA

In the hospital he meets emergency room doctor Martina Gusman (Lion’s Den), who is serious-minded and hard-working but maintains a secret drug habit. Despite initial misgivings, she’s drawn to Darin. When the two plot to double-cross Darin’s crooked employers, what begins as mere larceny accelerates, in true film noir fashion, to something more deadly. “Darin and Gusman,...

THE MAN NEXT DOOR

DIRECTOR: Mariano Cohn, Gastón Duprat - ARGENTINA

“The star of this dry and wicked black comedy is a building: the Curutchet House in La Plata, south of Buenos Aires—the only residence designed by Le Corbusier in the Americas. In this Argentine satire about class, love of beautiful things, and violent urges, the landmark structure plays the fictional home of world-famous interior designer Leonardo, his wife, and his daughter. All cherish the privileged status conferred by living in the house. Then horror strikes: a neighbor who wants more sun puts a window in the wall facing the family’s courtyard! Suddenly, aesthetic symmetry is destroyed, and the neighbor—too friendly,...
