The Student. 2011. Argentina. Written and directed by Santiago Mitre
La película El Estudiante, del director argentino Santiago Mitre, regresa a NYC para presentarse por una semana en el Museo de Arte Moderno ( MoMA). Escúchenlo aqui en español conversando sobre su película con Richard Peña de la Film Society del Lincoln Center.

About: Winner of Special Jury Prizes at BAFICI (Buenos Aires) and Locarno, and a highlight of the New York Film Festival, The Student charts the political awakening of a student at the University of Buenos Aires. In this tense and shrewdly observedbildungsroman, a brilliant successor to films like Jean-Luc Godard’s Tout va bien (1972) and Krzysztof Zanussi’s Camouflage (1977), the apathetic yet seductive Roque (Lamothe) is drawn into the campus intrigue of warring student political parties, and finds himself torn between two competing impulses: the radical idealism of his girlfriend, a teacher assistant, and the realpolitik cunning of his mentor, a retired politician turned professor. Screenwriter-director Mitre, who has written award-winning scripts for Pablo Trapero and Walter Salles, makes his feature film debut with a sophisticated and subtle meditation on the still-unhealed wounds of Argentina’s Dirty War, and on the clash between old-guard Peronists and a younger generation of leftist activists in Buenos Aires today.
