The follow-up to Santiago Mitre's student political drama El Estudiante (featured in last year's focus on Argentine films at Northwest Film Forum) comes as an unexpected surprise: Los Posibles is a dance film, albeit as mysterious and propulsive as his first narrative feature.
Made in collaboration with choreographer Juan Onofri Barbato and Grupo KM29, Los Posibles is a cryptic and ultimately kinetic performance which enacts (and reconfigures) rituals of codified masculinity, a street-wise West Side Story told through gesture and a hammering drum-track belted out in the margins of an industrial 'stage.'
The title refers to acts of self-realization within and beyond the frame: this mesmerizing dance group is the dedicated result of an at-risk youth program.
SCREENS WITH La Piel (Ezequiel Yanco, Argentina)
A man and a woman go through the motions of dubbing a pornographic film. But the most clichéd of genres may not be what it appears, in this alternately droll and passionate take on the representation of desire.
