Films to watch
El Clan (The Clan) by Pablo Trapero will open the Cine Argentino. The film is based on the true story of the Puccio Clan who is infamous for kidnapping and killing people in the 1980s. It tackles the rampant “disappearances” even after Argentina’s military dictatorship.
Relatos Salvajes (Wild Tales), an Academy Award and Cannes Film Festival nominee by Damián Szifron, is dubbed as one of Argentina’s most-watched movies in 2014. It is an anthology film composed of six standalone stories that discuss injustice and vengeance.
More on the lighter side now, Diego Caplan’s Dos Mas Dos (Two Plus Two) is a drama-comedy about a couple and how revealing their dirty little secret to their friends awakened desires that rocked their marriage.
Mamá Se Fue De Viaje (10 Days Without Mom) by Ariel Winograd is a hilarious film that revolves around a tale of a housewife who takes a vacation, leaving her clueless husband with their kids for 10 days.
Finally, La Luz Incidente (Incident Light) is a film shot beautifully in black and white directed by Ariel Rotter. It is an intimate story about family, love, and mourning set in Buenos Aires in the 1960s.
Shangri-La Plaza EVP and General Manager Lala Fojas said they are happy to bring a new world of quality international films to Filipino moviegoers by hosting Cine Argentino.
