Argentine SYMPHONY FOR ANA Wins Jury Award at Stony Brook Film Festival


The Argentine film Symphony for Ana / Sinfonía para Ana, written, directed and produced by Ernesto Ardito and Virna Molina, was the winner of the Jury Award for Best Feature Film at the 23rd edition of the Stony Brook Film Festival, which took place took place July 19 - 28 at Stony Brook University in Long Island, New York.

Starring starring Isadora Ardito, Rocio Palacín, Rafael Federman, Ricky Arraga, Vera Fogwill and Rodrigo Noya, the film follows Ana and Isa who are inseparable friends attending the same high school in the months leading up to the 1976 coup d’état in Argentina. Both grew up with the idea that there are two essential things in life: experiencing true love and changing the world. When the time comes for Ana to fall in love, things are not so clear.

The pressure from her student political group because she has fallen in love with a boy from another party and her own fear about having sex for the first time, cause her to distance herself from her boyfriend Lito and get closer to Camilo. Nothing will be the same. Her heart is trapped between two passions and— though she is only 15 years olds—the political reality will force her to make a fatal decision.
