Followed by a live video discussion with Matías Piñeiro
Dir. Matías Piñeiro. 2013, 65 mins. DCP. With María Villar, Agustina Muñoz, Elisa Carricajo, Romina Paula, Gabriela Saidon. The young Argentine filmmaker Matias Piñeiro makes charming, sophisticated, and lyrical films that have much in common with the movies of French director Jacques Rivette. Seemingly digressive, his films are urban roundelays filled with ideas, playfully riffing on the tension between theatricality, storytelling, and real life. In Viola, a group of young actresses rehearse an all-female production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, and the lines between performers and their roles gradually slip away.
