Part of the official selection at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Damián Szifrón’s film is a black comedy in six episodes, each evoking the human violence that can arise in extreme situations, once social conventions are broken.

The official story (La historia oficial)

On 24 March 1986, exactly ten years after the military coup that overthrew Isabel Perón, “La Historia Official” received the first Oscar ever awarded to an Argentine film. Luiz Puenzo’s essential film deals with tacit complicity through willful blindness and silence. A history teacher discovers the links of her businessman husband with the military dictatorship, the origin of their adopted child, the torture suffered by a friend, and finally understands her mistakes, her guilt and the reality that surrounds her. Norma Aleandro received the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress in 1985.
Eva doesn't sleep (Eva no duerme)
By Pablo Aguero – 2015 – 85 min – ES w. FR subs With Gael García Bernal, Denis Lavant, Daniel Fanego, Imanol Arias, Ailín Salas...
After the bloody military coup of 1955, the Junta decides to get rid of the embalmed corpse of Evita Perón to prevent a cult of personality, just three years after her death at age thirty-three. The future of this polarizing woman’s dead body becomes a major issue – the living are obsessed with Evita. The true story of the disappearance and reappearance of Argentina’s female icon tells of an improbable, tragic journey across the Atlantic. Pablo Aguero’s gripping film has been shown at many major festivals.
