For this week’s choice we have selected a film taking very soon part in the Argentine Film Festival London.

“Abrir puertas y ventanas” (Back to Stay) is Milagros Mumenthaler first full feature.
The script was written with support from Cinéfondation (Festival de Cannes) and Ateliers d’Angers (organised by Jeanne Moreau). Filming was also supported by funding from Rotterdam Festival, through Cinemart and the Hubert Bals Fund.

“Abrir puertas y ventanas” (Back to Stay) takes place in Buenos Aires at the end of summer. Marina, Sofia and Violeta are alone in the family home after their grandmother, who had brought them up, has died. They have to come to terms with her death, each in her own way.
Marina concentrates on her studies while looking after the household, whereas Sofia becomes obsessed by her appearance and goes out with friends.
As for Violeta, she wanders around between bedroom and sitting room where, from time to time, she receives an older man. Discord, laughter, meanness, gestures of affection determine the rhythm of this period of uncertainty, until one day in autumn Violeta disappears without warning.

The film recently selected at the Locarno Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and San Sebastian Film Festival to name a few will be screening as part of the Argentine Film Festival London programme.
