This week on the Film at Lincoln Center Podcast, we’re featuring a special conversation between Cinema Tropical’s Co-founder and Executive Director, Carlos A. Gutiérrez, and Argentine director Martín Rejtman. A key figure of contemporary Argentine cinema, Rejtman discussed his filmography and the landmark deadpan comedy, Silvia Prieto.

Silvia Prieto is a 1999 comedy of details that follows a young woman through a short, precarious stretch of her life in Buenos Aires. The new restoration of the Argentine gem is now playing during Neighboring Scenes.

This talk was part of the 6th edition of Neighboring Scenes, the annual festival celebrating New Latin American Cinema, presented by Film at Lincoln Center and Cinema Tropical, now playing in our Virtual Cinema through April 12.

This talk is presented by HBO. This episode of the Film at Lincoln Center podcast is sponsored by Amazon Studios, presenting Sound of Metal and One Night in Miami. Now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. For your consideration. Click here to learn more.
