A summer house in Buenos Aires’ countryside, a group of friends planning a robbery, and an intricate web of lies and deception that will put an end to their dark relationships –this is the premise of They All Lie, a film where love, crime, and contemporary art are intertwined with Argentina’s nineteenth century history.

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.
