Event Originally produced by Cinema Tropical in 2016.
Summary An unconventional portrayal of several young women witnessed in immersive yet indeterminate states: within their bodies, among their friends and lovers, and ultimately in a culture of economic and spiritual recession. The film presents a documentary-like exposure of the quotidian while extending possibilities for redemption among this brood of the weary. Obliquely inspired by Bela Bartok’s sole opera, *Kékszakállú* radically transposes the portent of Bluebeard’s Castle into something far less recognizable: a tale of generational inertia, situated between the alternating and precisely rendered tableaux of work and repose in Buenos Aires and Punta del Este. Winner of the International Federation of Film Critics Award at the 2016 **Venice Film Festival**. Official Selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival** and **New York Film Festival**. "* eerie high-modernist fable... mightily minimalist, and drop-dead gorgeous.*" - Olaf Möller, ***Film Comment***
