But an unfortunate accident, on the way to removing the belongings from “El recreo”, will cause the appearance of Manuel (38), a former student with idealized memories, and Rosaura (34), beautiful and disturbing. Then Elena and Ariel will have the chance to review their questions together and inspire a new look at their personal worlds, on the other, and finally, on their futures.

Y Alicia), starring Pompeyo Audivert and Iván Moschner, on Canal Encuentro and on Cine Ar Play for the whole country.

Encount has a repetition scheduled for next April 6, at the same time.

After being screened at Doc Lisboa 2019 and being screened on Portuguese television, the film proposes a playful and experimental approach to the meeting between the Russian revolutionary leader León Trotsky and the founder of the surrealist movement André Breton, and features performances by Iván Moschner and Pompeyo Audivert and the participation of the writer Gabriela Cabezón Cámara, the filmmaker César González, the poet María Negro and the pianist Adriana de los Santos.

Iván Moschner and Pompeyo Audivert, two actors, live together in a lonely house in an Argentine coastal town. They rehearse strange and complex texts. The representation of his characters crosses the threshold of space and time: Leon Trotsky, in his Mexican exile, asks André Breton to write the draft of a manifesto to organize artists. The encounter between the eagle and the lion (as it was called in a famous article), happened in Mexico in 1938, and involved a unique effort by two men to arrive at a statement on the relationship between art and revolution. Tormented by pressure from the revolutionary leader, Breton no longer distinguishes sleep from waking. From his unconscious come encounters with a pianist, a filmmaker, a poet and a writer who vanish into the magma of the surreal.
