Argentine Movies at the ¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Film Festival

Venue: Cornerhouse, 70 Oxford Street, Manchester M1 5NH



Dos Hermanos - 2001

Thursday, March 10th at 1.30 pm and Sunday, March 20th at 6.20 pm

Directed by Daniel Burman

It is the tragicomic tale of two siblings dealing with the death of their mother. Veterans of Argentine cinema and TV, Graciela Borges and Antonio Gasalla, reveal complex love-hate relationships within the family with perfect comic timing, as the manipulative sister persuades her docile and repressed brother to relocate from Buenos Aires to one of her misguided property purchases across the river in Uruguay.


El Asaltante - 2007

Sunday, March 6th at 6.20 pm

Directed by Pablo Fendrik

The action of "El Asaltante" takes place over a two and a half hour period, just at the crucial moment when a long-prepared plan is about to be executed. As the camera closely follows his actions, the viewer becomes a privileged witness to one man’s most intimate moments of anxiety and desperation, to the seconds that precede a life or death decision.

¡Viva! is pleased to welcome director Pablo Fendrik for post-screening Q&A session.

Por Sus Propios Ojos - 2007

Monday, March 7th at 6.20 pm

Directed by Liliana Paolinelli

For her college thesis, film student Alicia is making a documentary about women related to prisoners in the local jail. The only problem is no one is willing to be interviewed on camera. In comes Elsa, a desperate woman whose son has recently been arrested for petty crime. Elsa will grant Alicia an interview, only if she visits Luis in jail. But when Alicia makes the visit, her world collapses.


El último verano de la Boyita - 2009

Tuesday, 22nd March 6.20 pm and Thursday, March 24th 6.30 pm

Directed by Julia Solomonoff

This is a coming-of-age story with an unusual angle on gender politics. Set in the open plains of the Argentine Pampas, where Jorgelina spends her first summer holiday apart from her newly adolescent older sister. She finds close companionship with Mario, a young ranch hand and expert horse rider. A surprising revelation that greatly disturbs the adults only serves to bring the two friends closer together.
