Description

Director Laura Citarella Attending.


Laura Citarella’s ambitious, 250-minute, two-part feature perplexed and delighted audiences at the The Venice Biennale, and cemented Argentine director Laura Citarella’s place in the pantheon.

When biologist Laura (Laura Paredes, also co-screenwriter), disappears, it sends her boyfriend Rafael (Rafael Sprgelburd) and her co-worker Ezequiel (Ezequiel Pierri) down a wormhole trying to find her. Ending up in the city of Trenque Lauquen, the men begin their search. This seemingly modest story, writ large in 12 chapters, unfolds in epic style, in a fractured and demanding narrative that is at once a study of realism, academics, the supernatural and the erotic, and has left viewers astonished. “[W]ill send pulses racing like the best of cinema does.” –Zhuo-Ning Su, The Film Stage
