Argentine Film Festival Returns To London

By | 02 April, 2013

The Argentine Film Festival returns to London for it’s second year, expanding into three venues and once again offering a wide variety of Argentine cinema and cultural events.

The festival will start on Wednesday 17th April with a Malbec Day-themed screening of The Ways Of Wine before building up to the official Opening Night on Thursday 18th April where All In (La Suerte En Tus Manos), the latest by acclaimed director Daniel Burman which also boasts the acting talent of Uruguayan musician Jorge Drexler, will be the film of the evening.

Other highlights during the 5-day festival will be Gonzalo Tobal’s excellent Villegas, a music-driven road movie which got a great reception at Cannes last year; The Dead Man and Being Happy, another road movie though this one’s all about deadpan humour and quirky narrative; White Elephant, which once again teams director Pablo Trapero with Ricardo Darín and Martina Gusmán; and a couple of very different documentaries in the shape of Sofia Turns 100 and Lost World Cup about a football world cup that may have happened in South America during the Second World War.

All events will take place at Ritzy Brixton, Picturehouse Hackney and Cineworld in Haymarket. In addition to the films there will also be a music event at Ritzy Brixton, a football fever party, discussions with some of the film-makers as well as great Argentine music videos from Sonido Ambiente to introduce many of the films.
