A dazzling and delightful mystery about love and its follies from filmmaker Matías Piñeiro, VIOLA follows a young woman who joins a small Shakespeare theatre company in Buenos Aires and becomes entangled in a seductive roundelay of romantic dalliances, intrigue and revelation.
Between November and December Calgary Cinematheque presents a four-film series from a diverse set of Argentine directors, all released in the 21st Century as Argentina was emerging from their economic crisis. The four films, JAUJA (Lisandro Alonso), THE HEADLESS WOMAN (Lucrecia Martel), BOMBON (Carlos Sorin) and VIOLA (Matías Piñeiro), are by directors associated with different regions of Argentina because of their film settings. In addition, these directors themes and styles range from a vérité style to a cinema inspired by theatre and literature.
