Hermia & Helena
Matías Piñeiro, USA, Argentina 2016 DCP Color 87'
Camila, a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York to attend an artistic residency to develop her new project: a Spanish translation of Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream. Upon her arrival in New York, Camila quickly realizes that her work is not enough to compensate for the loss of her friends and her boyfriend she has left behind. A new path appears when she begins to receive a series of mysterious postcards from Danièle, a former participant in the residency. The secrets lead Camila to abandon her studies, winding her way through a series of amorous detours, dead ends and new beginnings.
