Portraits of the Future

Retratos del Futuro

24th TDF: Greek Premiere

Before the pandemic, the director was making a film about the resistance of the subway delegates in Buenos Aires, but the pandemic interrupted it and several protagonists of the film died from COVID-19. The dystopian future of which the film spoke was transformed into a present never imagined. The stopped project is now an existential, philosophical, and human essay on the new “normality” that affects us. The film is built as an experiment with the cinematographic resources that isolation allowed. The language of networks and screens resizes everyday reality, while love is a source of resistance that inhabits the most personal archives.
