Rosalinda + Could See a Puma + Noelia
This programme of outstanding short films highlights the richness of recent Argentine cinema. Matías Piñeiro’s Rosalinda, an original meditation on Shakespeare’s As You Like It, is a rich and enjoyable work that sustains a brisk comic tempo in a mellow, sunlit atmosphere. The programme also contains two winners of the short film official competition at this year’s Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema. In Eduardo Williams’s Could See a Puma (which was also presented in the Cinéfondation Selection at this year’s Cannes Film Festival), an accident sends a group of young boys on a journey from the high roofs of their neighbourhood, passing through its destruction, to the deepest part of the Earth. In María Alché’s Noelia, the heroine, having been kicked out of her house, walks euphorically through parts of Buenos Aires, creating a city to her own measure.
