Pre-screening gelato tasting provided by Dolcezza Artisinal Gelato
Julián, an actor, is fed up with his disappointing career in Buenos Aires, relegated to bit roles in avant-garde theatre and indie films. When a big-budget U.S. Western prepares to shoot in his home country, Julián becomes obsessed with getting cast in the lead role, a cowboy. As portrayed by actor-writer-director Juan Minujín, Julián is a wickedly comic creation, prone to over-the-top, uncensored interior-voice monologues during his copious downtime —his rambling rants typically delusions of grandeur, sexual fantasies and ventings of spleen. But can he tap that same outlaw energy when the director calls, "Action?" Opening Night, 2011 BAFICI; Official Selection, 2012 Toronto and Miami Film Festivals.
