A comedy of plots and entanglements, the first feature film by Matías Piñeiro is a sentimental fantasy organized around a young museum guide who occupies her spare time in the passionate reading of Domingo F. Sarmiento’s Campaign of the Allied Grand Army of South America, whose content she freely applies to the love and work life of those around her.
Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1982, Matías Piñeiro graduated from Universidad del Cine, where he later worked as Professor of Filmmaking and Film History. In 2011 he moved to the United States to attend Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program. Piñeiro, who currently teaches Filmmaking at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, is now working on the development of a short film, Porcia, and a new feature film, Ariel –a CPH:LAB project based on William Shakespeare’s The Tempest that he co-directs with Galician filmmaker Lois Patiño. His last four films are part of a series devoted to the female roles in William Shakespeare’s comedies.
