Friday July 14 – Thursday July 20

Featured Film:

Hermia and Helena at the Northwest Film Forum

The latest in Argentinean director Matías Piñeiro’s films inspired by Shakespeare takes A Midsummer Night’s Dream as its jumping off point. Camila (Agustina Muñoz) goes from Buenos Aires to New York as part of a special school program where she’ll work on translating the play. The Bard is less apparently central to the story than he was in Viola or The Princess of France, instead we track several of Camila’s relationships past and present; romantic, familial, and mysterious. Somewhat more conventional but no less affecting than those previous films, it was one of the highlights at last year’s Vancouver Film Festival.
