Summary Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Certain Regard Award for Best Actress, a prize shared by the film's three leads (Adela Sanchez, Eva Bianco, and Victoria Raposo), this subtle, challenging mix of documentary and narrative filmmaking follows a trio of women who deeply inhabit their cinematic roles as social workers interacting with members of an impoverished rural Argentine neighborhood. Facing poverty that threatens to overwhelm even the greatest reserves of calm, humor, and empathy, the three move into makeshift living quarters in a run-down hospital. They then begin the work of recording data on the needs of the community and getting to know each other, while trying to make their living quarters habitable... and still find time for an occasional night out. Written and directed by Ivan Fund and Santiago Loza, with cinematography by Maria Laura Collasso, The Lips is minutely observed, naturalistic, and haunting.
