The Argentine film Un mundo misterioso / A Mysterious World (pictured) by Rodrigo Moreno and the Uruguayan film 3 by Pablo Stoll where the big winners of the 7th edition of the São Paulo Latin American Film Festival sharing the main prize for Best Film.
Moreno's film starring by Esteban Bigliardi and Cecilia Rainero is the story of a likeable oddball moving through a paralysed society threatened by economic ruin. Stoll's film is a comedy about three people condemned to the same, absurd fate: being a family. For Rodolfo life at home feels empty and cold, as if he doesn’t belong there. Meanwhile, his first wife Graciela and their teenage daughter, Ana, are going through defining moments in their lives. Subtly, Rodolfo will try to slip back into the place he once had next to them and walked away from ten years ago.
Both films are made in co-production by the Argentine production company Rizoma and the Uruguayan Control Z Films. This year's festival jury was composed by film by film programmer and producer Violeta Bava, film programmer Erick González, director Federico Veiroj, film programmer and distributor Sandro Fiorin and actor César Troncoso. The festival took place July 12-19 in the Brazilian city.
