WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Mariano Pensotti's "filmic drama" threads together the lives of four filmmakers over the course of a year in Buenos Aires. In this intricate portrait of a city and its inhabitants, a handful of actors fluidly shift between the characters' real lives and their films on an elaborate split-screen set. By adapting cinematic techniques—voice-over, cross-fades, long takes—Pensotti crafts an epic tale of love, money, work, and art. Do our fictions reflect the world, or is the world a distorted projection of our fictions?
