Los sonámbulos (Flyer)

Los sonámbulos (2019)

A woman, Luisa, and her 14 year-old daughter, a sleepwalker in the teenage awakening. A marriage at the edge of a silenced crisis. A ritualistic and endogamic family: grandmother, siblings, and cousins. Summer, sweat, alcohol. Naked bodies, bodies in transition and their gazes upon those new bodies. A New Year’s celebration in the family’s ancestral country home is the necessary trap to awaken the sleepwalkers. More

Un amor (Flyer)

Un amor (2012)

Does love at first sight exist? This may certainly be the case, but sometimes you need time to be sure of this love. This film describes such a story about getting to know somebody and falling in love as a teenager, and about meeting again many years later. It begins in the 70s, in the summer in a small town by the river. Bruno and Lalo are teenagers and good friends. They hang around together in the heat, until one rainy day Lisa turns up, a beautiful young woman who capriciously and quick-wittedly turns the heads of both boys – and then decides on one of them.

Lluvia (2008)

On a chaotic Friday in Buenos Aires, Alma and Roberto meet in the pouring rain. In the middle of the traffic chaos, the door of Alma's car opens. Roberto gets in, injured and wet to the bones. "Please close the door! As soon as this is all over, I'm getting out." Without knowing why, Alma does what Roberto asks her to do. They have no idea that this sudden and unexpected encounter will change their lives. Alma made aimless rounds in the city in her car before, and Roberto wanted to find himself. None of them know what to do or how to progress in their lives. More

He meets Olinda, who runs a local restaurant and was herself stranded in Argentina half a century ago in search of her great love. More
