Synopsis

Mariel (María Villar) wants to play the role of Isabella in a local theater troupe’s production of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, but money problems prevent her from preparing for the audition. She thinks of asking her brother for financial help, but is worried about being too direct. Her solution is to ask her brother’s girlfriend, Luciana (Agustina Muñoz), also an actress and a more self-assured one, to convince her brother to give her the money. Luciana agrees on the condition that Mariel will not abandon her acting and continue to prepare for the part of Isabella.

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 and Hermia & Helena. 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.
