Argentina
Stories from Latin America

December 18 - 28, 2013

Pera Film continues its Latin American journey with selected recent films from Argentina. Presented in collaboration with the Consulate General of Argentina in İstanbul, the selected four films produced from the last few years exemplify the ingrained rich film culture.

The cinema of Argentina, one of the most captivating and established cinemas of Latin America, boasts a long and productive history, a socially conscious, politically minded, engaging character and a constantly evolving nature. More recently, the recession at the beginning of the 21st century gave birth to novel and significant cinematic motivation, which in fact continued in the footsteps of the art-house wave that began in the 1990s with directors such as Lisandro Alonso, Lucrecia Martel, Martin Rejtman, and Pablo Trapero. Today, more than a decade later, the newest generation of Argentine filmmakers emerges.
