About Thirty (Arturo a los 30)

Sunday, Apr 21, 2024 at 6:00 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Q&A with director Martín Shanly and actress Camila Dougall 

Dir. Martín Shanly. 2023, 92 mins. Argentina. DCP. In Spanish with English subtitles. One of the “best undistributed films of 2023” (Film Comment) and winner of the Best Argentine Director and Audience Awards at the Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival (BAFICI), Shanly’s second feature is a witty comedy of errors about Arturo (played by the director himself), who, on the way to the wedding party of his former best friend, is involved in a bizarre car accident. Though he escapes unscathed, from that moment on, a series of memories unfold as deeply personal flashbacks. As he proceeds to intoxicate himself with alcohol and pot, the past and the present merge in a sometimes humorous manner, forcing him to confront delayed grief and the darkest aspects of his personality. New York premiere
