Synopsis

Camila, a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York to attend an artistic residency to develop her new project: a Spanish translation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Hermia & Helena introduces Buenos Aires to New York, bouncing between hemispheres, translating Spanish to English, and clashing the written words of Shakespeare against the realities of modern life. *Catalan première

Director

Matías Piñeiro

He studied at the Argentine Cinema University and obtained a Radcliffe scholarship to study at Harvard. Her career has been seen, almost entirely, in D’A, where he landed in 2013 with Viola, and later with La princesa de Francia, Hermia & Helena and Isabella. His films form a beautiful, fun and original set that plays with the theatricality of everyday life, always close to Shakespeare. In 2016 he was part of the D’A jury.
