Description

In this stylish, simmering drama from director Benjamín Naishtat, a self-righteous detective is pitted against a seemingly upstanding lawyer. Set in a small town in 1970s Argentina, Rojo follows Claudio, a lawyer whose exemplary reputation is challenged when a frantic stranger accosts him at a restaurant and later outside the establishment. Claudio quickly finds himself in a situation he never expected–hiding a body. Blending thriller, dark comedy and a historical examination of the economic climate of Argentina at the time, Rojo also serves as a deconstruction of a technically good man, Claudio, whose choices stand in direct conflict with his supposed ethics. When a private detective named Sinclair turns up to get to the bottom of a disappearance, his path leading him to Claudio, the difference between good talk and good deeds becomes apparent.

Director Biography

Benjamín Naishtat studied film at Universidad del Cine and was a Radcliffe Film Study Center Fellow. Naishtat wrote and directed the award winning films History of Fear (14) and The Movement (15). Rojo (18) is his third feature film.


Press

"The complacency and corruption of pre-coup Argentina is laid bare in chilling, absurd style in Benjamin Naishtat's superb third feature." - Variety
