This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Vladimir Durán
Axel is a ten year-old who lives with his mother Margarita, and his three twenty-something sisters in a flat in Montserrat, a once-aristocratic Buenos Aires neighborhood now fallen into decadence. Margarita requests to be locked up in her bedroom as part of a homemade treatment which remains partially unexplained.
Axel and his sisters play the part of jailers of their own mother in this odd self-preservation agreement - this will be the arrangement between them until Margarita attempts to break it. Axel will then have to decide which of the contradictory orders given by his mother to follow.
So Long Enthusiasm, dir Vladimir Durán, Argentina/Colombia 2017, 79 mins
