First Latin American Films Selected for Toronto


The Toronto Film Festival announced the first slate of films selected for the 37th edition of the Canadian festival that will take place September 6-16. Among the over 60 film announced today are two Latin American productions: the Argentine film Todos tenemos un plan / Everyone Has a Plan (pictured) by Ana Piterbarg and the Chiean film No by Pablo Larraín.

Starring Viggo Mortensen and Soledad Villamil, the debut feature by Argentine director Ana Piterbarg is a thriller about a man who assumes the identity of his deceased twin and becomes caught up in his sibling’s shady dealings in the Tigre Delta region of Argentina.

Pablo Larraín's No starring Mexican actor Gael García Bernal about a hot-shot advertising executive hired by the opposition party to campaign against Chilean dictator Augustin Pinochet, which had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival to great success last May, will be making its North American debut in Toronto.
