Summary Nicola Costantino is one of Latin America’s most controversial and admired visual artists. With often macabre imagery rooted in a violence that pervades the history of Argentina, she is known for provocative works, such as lifelike casts of animals, soap constructed out of fat that has been liposuctioned from her own body, and clothes and accessories made of male nipple casts. THE ARTEFACTA is a gorgeous cinematic exploration of Costantino and her work. It’s a fitting match, as much of Costantina’s work is influenced by movies – from early German expressionism to the representation and objectification of women in contemporary film. Featuring candid interviews with Cristiani, the film draws audiences into her mysterious and captivating pieces, as well as the rigorous process by which they are created. Official Selection, **Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival** and **BFI London Film Festival**. *“Cristiani portrays non-traditional perceptions of beauty and converts audience members into art critics in the process of her film” - Elle Leonsis, **indieWire***
