Mariano Pensotti’s “filmic drama” threads together the lives of four filmmakers over the course of a year in Buenos Aires. In this intricate portrait of a city and its inhabitants, a handful of actors fluidly shift between the characters’ real lives and their films on an elaborate split-screen set. By adapting cinematic techniques—voice-over, cross-fades, long takes—Pensotti crafts an epic tale of love, money, work, and art. Do our fictions reflect the world, or is the world a distorted projection of our fictions?

Mariano Pensotti is an Argentine author and theater director who has been heralded as one of Latin America’s brightest theater talents. He has created more than fifteen performances in the past ten years, including El Pasado Es Un Animal Grotesco (UTR 2012).
