..the truth is, I’m going to be away and miss all your films. But those in town can still catch them, as it runs from today until Monday. Doing its best to heal any Malvinas related rifts, this compact collection of shorts and main features should show off the country’s burgeoning quality of film making.
My pick is The Man Next Door – shot on location at the only Le Corbusier designed residential building in South America. Used car salesman Victor’s desire to smash a new window for his house that will look directly into his neighbour’s modernist living room creates a battle of wills in this comedy.
