George Hunka reviews Panic and Ex-Antwone here.
by Rafael Spregelburd,
directed by Brooke O’Harra with her company,
The Theatre of a Two-Headed Calf
Infused with the aesthetics of low-budget horror movies, Panic follows a mother and her two children, remnants of an unclassifiable family, as they attempt to recover the key to their safety deposit box and the life savings within – from the hands of the dead. Their pursuit is a fatal cocktail of desperate measures: from legal, religious, and psychotherapeutic tactics to the paranormal.
Approximate running time: 120 minutes
by Federico Leon, directed by Juan Souki
This hyper-fragmented text imagines a dreamlike encounter with the past, navigating a labyrinth where memories, fantasies and being overlap in an unconscious way. Leon excavates a mental state in which reality, an ex-reality, and a wished for reality converge.
Approximate running time: 60 minutes
