DARKNESS BY DAY

DIRECTOR: MARTIN DE SALVO - ARGENTINA

“In an a old house in a tiny village, Virginia is left alone after her father leaves to check on his ill niece. That is, until her cousin Anabel, who also seems to be under the weather, is brought and left with her. Thankful for another person to talk to, Virginia makes every effort to keep Anabel comfortable and to bond with her. Anabel sleeps most of the day, and at night can be found wandering the woods alone. The radio reports a rabies outbreak in the remote region of Argentina where the women are holed up. In this...

JAUJA

DIRECTOR: LISANDRO ALONSO - ARGENTINA

“A work of tremendous beauty and a source of continual surprise, Alonso’s film is set during the Argentinian army’s Conquest of the Desert in the 1870s and is his first with international stars (Viggo Mortensen), and with a co-writer—poet and novelist Fabián Casas. But the emphasis, as in all his work, is on bodies in landscapes. Danish military engineer Gunnar Dinesen (Mortensen, in a Technicolor-bright cavalry uniform) traverses a visually stunning variety of Patagonian shrub, rock, grass, and desert on horseback and on foot in search of his teenage daughter, who has eloped with a new love. Alonso’s style...

THE THIRD SIDE OF THE RIVER

DIRECTOR: CELINA MURGA - ARGENTINA

Seventeen-year-old Nicholas’s father is a respected doctor, but he lives a double life: one, seemingly harmonious, with Nico and his mother and siblings; and the other, mere blocks away, with his second family—with whom he spends most of his time and the bulk of his money. The titular third side of the river refers to a sort of purgatory or limbo, effective imagery for Nicholas, who, torn between protecting the family he loves and choosing his own future, becomes tormented by a tension so tightly wound it threatens to become explosive. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese and winner of the...

WILD TALES

DIRECTOR: DAMIÁN SZIFRÓN - ARGENTINA

Living up to the expectations of the title, Damián Szifrón’s outrageously entertaining anthology of six blackly-comic short stories packs a buzz-inducing wallop. Though each is unconnected from the other, they share thematic unity in their tales of frustration, bestial revenge, and the past coming back to haunt in escalating fashion. There is a betrayed bride, a road rage incident gone to hell, a meltdown with the Buenos Aires parking patrol, two passengers on a plane making a very uncomfortable discovery, and a waitress meeting someone from her past she would rather not see. Produced by Pedro AlmodÓvar and possessed with...
