GRASS

Down an alley where one wouldn’t expect to find such a place, there is a coffeehouse where people sit here and there talking amongst themselves. Opposite the coffeehouse, the owner of a small grocery has planted various kinds of vegetables that sprout up inside large rubber basins. As time passes, the people sitting at different tables grow familiar with each other and start to mix. One woman observes the others and writes down her thoughts. Even as the night grows late, they all remain in the coffeehouse.

The winner of the public prize at D'A 2016 released his latest film at the official section of Cannes with this story of youthful love that is becoming increasingly obscure and disturbing.

BELMONTE

Federico Veiroj

The most refined film of the Uruguayan director, endowed with a strange and hallucinated humor, capable of being misanthropic and at the same time humanist. A film about masculinities in crisis with a great authorial duel.
