First screened in October 2014
Director: Diego Lerman. Cast: Julieta Díaz, Sebastián Molinaro, Marta Lubos, Carlos Weber, Valentina García Guerrero, Silvia Bayle, Sofia Palomino, Sandra Villani. Screenplay: Diego Lerman and María Meira.

Twitter Capsule: Smart, nerve-wracking study of wages of fear wrought by domestic violence. May not advance the form, but compels.

VOR:   Lerman has carved a niche for contemporary Argentinian film that is neither laundered for commerce nor insulated by self-reflexive arthouse tactics. Interesting turns in shelter and jungle.
