Synopsis

The Argentine Film Festival returns to London’s Ritzy and Picturehouse Central this 18-21 August for a special summer edition celebrating our fifth anniversary! Nico Casavecchia will be in London to present the film Alex is a conflicted animation filmmaker living in Brooklyn. His “Dancing Tomatoes” animation video went viral two years ago and since then Alex has been trying to prove the world he can do more than “funny videos, and dancing things”. Pressured by his friend Josh to sign a contract with a yogurt brand to develop the “dancing fruits show” and plunge deeper into artistic superficiality Alex will, instead, buy a ticket to Argentina. The plan is to meet with Sofia, a girl with whom he started an online relationship after she left a nasty comment about his work and who has never seen in person. Alex’s hope to find love and substance will be confronted after finding Sofía living on an island in the Tigre, on outskirts of Buenos Aires, with her intimidating artist boyfriend Víctor and his assistant Flor. Alex will be forced to be the fish out of water and try to capture Sofía’s interest or come back to his old life and sign the contract.
