Dir. Pablo Solarz. Argentina/Uruguay, 2022. 76 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. Felipe is a Uruguayan teenager who spends his days riding his bike with friends along the empty streets of the beach town where they live, rapping freestyle and taking acting classes behind his mother’s back. He’s so passionate about acting that when he sleeps, he sees entire plays in his dreams and writes them overnight. Given the chance to audition for a film, Felipe escapes to Montevideo and meets his paternal grandmother, after not having seen her since his father’s death. During his trip, he ends up putting together the pieces of his past, figuring out who he wants to be. A favorite at the Berlin Film Festival and winner of the Critics Award at Spain’s Malaga Film Festival, the third feature by Argentine writer-director Pablo Solarz is an endearing personal coming-of-age tale of self-realization.
