A housemaid working in an exclusive gated community in the outskirts of Buenos Aires embarks on a journey of sexual and mental liberation in a nudist swinger-club. Director Lukas Valenta Rinner depicts Argentina’s class tensions in this hilariously deadpan social satire. A perfect blend of mordant humor, formal meticulousness, eccentric anarchy and nudist tableaux. Official Selection: Toronto, Rotterdam, Sao Paulo, Mar del Plata
SELF-CRITICISM OF A BOURGEOIS DOG
dir. Julian Radlmaier, 2017

Young filmmaker Julian, ironically played by director Julian Radlmaier himself, falls for a young expat (Deragh Campbell) and offers her the leading part in his wannabe Communist fairy tale film. Radlmaier’s fantastical debut entirely lives up to (and delivers on) its astounding title. With welcome flourishes of humor, unreality and an incisive critique of political filmmaking, it resembles what a young Buñuel would have made of today’s Europe. Official Selection: Berlin, Rotterdam, Melbourne
