Beautifully shot in the Argentine jungle, LOS MUERTOS is a coolly hypnotic and elegantly austere investigation into the boundaries between nature and civilization--and the violence that lurks within both.
An old man named Vargas is released from prison. Seemingly anxious to get lost, Vargas buys a canoe and heads downriver. He methodically relieves himself of clothing and money along the way, allowing the jungle to reclaim him.
Filmmaker Lisandro Alonso (La Libertad) refuses to explain his themes and metaphors-- the isolation of the Argentine jungle; the path from guilt to absolution; the reintegration into civilization by an ex-criminal preferring his audiences to luxuriate in the sensual sights and vivid sounds of the tropics. Alonso, one of the most talented and distinct voices of Argentinian cinema, boldly explores an inner world that is revealed through nature, but with unsettling implications.

Documentary filmmaker Raymundo Gleyzer was the founder of the Cine de la Base, a group dedicated to bringing revolutinary films to the people. In 1976, he was abducted and thrown into a concentration camp by Argentina's military dictatorship. He was one of 30,000 innocent people in these camps that were tortured and murdered. This explosive retrospective of his films reveals his commitment to social reform in Latin America--a commitment he gave his life for.
This collection features, Mexico the Frozen Revolution, which uses rare newreel footage of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata to connect the betrayal of the 1910 Mexico Revolution with the failed revolution of Gleyzer's own time. At great risk to his own safety, Gleyzer exposed corruption in the PRI--the party that governed Mexico for almost 70 years. Also included is The Traitors, Gleyzer's only fiction film, which skillfully interweaves documentary footage with fictional scenes to trace the Peronista movement during the most explosive era in Argentina's history. The third disc offers a rare opportunity to experience nine of Gleyzer's short films, including Swift, It Happened in Hualfin, Don't Forget, Don't Forgive, and the tragic The Land Burns.

And along the way, he'llsupport his father and fulfill his mother's dream!
This magnificent Argentinean film centers on Rafael (Ricardo Darín), a restaurateur whose life is becoming a knot of stress and failing relationships. When his father, Nino (Héctor Alterio), decides that after 44 years of marriage he wants to give his wife, Norma (Norma Aleandro), the church wedding she always wanted, Rafael scoffs; Norma has advanced Alzheimer's and doesn't recognize where she is or who's around her. After Rafael has a heart attack, he realizes he has to change his life--but when he makes changes, he discovers how much of his life he'd been taking for granted, and that he may have cast aside the very things he seeks. Son of the Bride is smartly and richly written, directed with generosity and precision, and full of astonishingly full performances. The story's full of clever touches, but it never lets cleverness overwhelm humanity. Simply a superb movie. --Bret Fetzer

During Argentina's economic crisis of the '90s, nine year-old Eugenia and her mother, Florencia, live a seemingly colorful life surrounded by eclectic neighbors and an offbeat collection of family.
But for Eugenia, who must deal with her mother's dysfunctional and drug-addled lifestyle, life is anything but pleasant in this darkly inspiring story of expectation, acceptance and nontraditional family, led by standout performances from director Vera Fogwill and young actress Luca Snieg.
"This is cinematic practice at its best: whilst exhibiting the social and political problems and gender roles, the film establishes a close connection with its local audiences, but it also achieves its universal aim."
"Matching style and originality with a refreshing lack of moralizing, 'Kept & Dreamless' keeps the banner of Argentinean independent cinema flying high…" –Variety
Kept and Dreamless is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles.

This is one of those rare political films that transcend politics with a stirring emotional story. Argentinean first-time director Luis Puenzo tells the story of a strong-willed teacher who tries to learn the true identity of her adopted daughter's father, coming to suspect that he was a political prisoner. Her political awakening is actually an emotional one as well because of her detached persona. Ironically, even though she is a teacher, she doesn't connect with people very well, thinking of history in the most abstract terms. But she learns the painful truth of present-day life. Tautly directed by Puenzo, The Official Story was a 1985 Oscar-winner for Best Foreign Film, with a riveting performance by Norma Aleandro. --Bill Desowitz
