Eva Doesn't Sleep
aka Eva no duerme
First screened in September 2015
Director: Pablo Agüero. Cast: Gael García Bernal, Imanol Arias, Daniel Fanego, Denis Lavant, Ailín Salas, Sofía Brito, Nicolás Goldschmidt, Miguel Sola, Sabrina Machi. Screenplay: Pablo Agüero.

Twitter Capsule: Eva Perón as Addie Bundren. Caryl Churchill-esque. Brute embodiments and symbolic afterlives in unwinnable duels.

VOR:   Agüero's working through a lot of bold ideas, visual and sonic. Sometimes the film feels like more of a workshop than a finished object, but there's some thematic sense to that.
