 Join us for our 11th annual showcase of the best new films from Argentina on the big screen at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. You'll discover films just released in the festival circuit, filmmakers and actors in person and a mix of work from Argentina's most exciting new and established artists. Everything will be here if you just seize the opportunity!

Those who have been following Argentina New Cinema since its beginnings have been able to watch "The Secret in Their Eyes" from Juan Campanella (2010 Oscar for Best Foreign Movie) the year of its release, as well as great films from now well-known Argentine directors as Pablo Trapero, Lucía Puenzo and Daniel Burman, to name a few of the talents introduced by the series.
This year we will also add a tango exhibition and tango lessons before the first screening of each day, and of course, our traditional opening night party for ticket-holders.
Film schedule will be announced in October 2012.

Friday, November 16 – 7:30 PM
Los Angeles Premiere! EVERYBODY HAS A PLAN (TODOS TENEMOS UN PLAN), 2012, 118 min. Viggo Mortensen (showing an impressive command of Spanish) stars in Ana Piterbarg's subtle, mood-infused thriller as identical twin brothers Augustin and Pedro. When Pedro dies, Augustin, tired of his daily life, takes the opportunity to swap places, returning to Pedro's home in the swamplands of the Delta Tigre region and taking on his beekeeper brother's identity. But Pedro had shady business dealings on the side, which Augustin quickly learns as he becomes the target of some very dangerous, unsavory individuals. With Soledad Villamil, Sofia Gala Castiglione and Daniel Fanego. An official selection of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Monica Orozco will lead a free tango lesson from 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM in the Egyptian courtyard.

Double Feature: Argentina's Official Entry for the 2013 Best Foreign-Language Oscar! Los Angeles Premiere! CLANDESTINE CHILDHOOD (INFANCIA CLANDESTINA), 2012, 112 min. Benjamin Avila’s partly autobiographical account of his upbringing - in which, at the age of 12, he was forced to assume a false identity - is a moving portrait of adolescent life in politically tumultuous 1970s Argentina. Young Juan (Teo Gutierrez Moreno) and his radical parents (Cesar Troncoso and Natalie Oreiro) enter the country separately to reunite with Juan’s older brother in Buenos Aires, and establish a false business front. Meanwhile, Juan attempts a life of normalcy at his new middle school, crushing on his classmate Maria (Violeta Palukas), all the while mentally juggling the potentially deadly situation his family willfully faces day in and day out. Winner of the Casa de America Award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival. Official selections of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and Directors Fortnight at the 2012 Cannes International Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.

WHITE ELEPHANT (ELEFANTE BLANCO), 2012, 110 min. Dir. Pablo Trapero. Father Julian (Ricardo Darin), a middle-aged priest privately battling a brain tumor, and young Father Nicolas (Jeremie Renier) have their mission in one of the most dangerous slums of Buenos Aires, distinctive for a massive dilapidating structure nicknamed the "White Elephant.” Julian struggles to keep a housing project from interference by government officials and church heads, while Nicolas dabbles into a forbidden romance with social worker Luciana (Martina Gusman), who is also trying to help the inhabitants of the shanty town. Nominated for the Un Certain Regard Award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Makela Brizuela of the Makela Tango School will lead a free tango lesson from 6:15 PM – 7:15 PM in the Egyptian courtyard.

Sunday, November 18 – 7:30 PM
Double Feature: Los Angeles Premiere! CHINESE TAKE-OUT (UN CUENTO CHINO), 2011, 93 min. Curmudgeon Roberto (Ricardo Darin from THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES) is shaken out of his solitary daily routine of collecting absurd newspaper clippings and visiting his parents’ grave when Chinese immigrant Jun (Huang Sheng Huang) literally falls into his life out of the back of a cab. Through a series of events that go against Roberto’s better judgment, the out-of-work Jun moves in with him, which proves a nightmare for Roberto as he makes increasingly desperate (and hilarious) attempts to get rid of his new roommate. Sebastian Borensztein’s warm, endearing third feature offers a heartfelt and funny reminder that friendship can crop up between the most strange, mismatched and plain old grumpy of odd couples. With Muriel Santa Anna. Winner of Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Film at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Argentina. In Spanish with English subtitles.
followed by

THE LAST ELVIS (EL ULTIMO ELVIS), 2012, 91 min. John McInerny gives a knockout performance as Elvis impersonator Carlos Guttierez, who lives in a pocket of Buenos Aires peopled by similarly obsessive Gene Simmons, Barbra Streisand and you-name-it lookalikes, and spends his every waking hour crooning, strutting and pelvic-thrusting like the King. Naturally he's become estranged from his family, but when wife Alejandra (Griselda Siciliani) is in a dire car accident, Carlos must somehow reintegrate himself into the world of the living and learn to be a father to his tellingly-named daughter Lisa Marie (Margarita Lopez). Directed by first-time filmmaker Armando Bo, co-screenwriter of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's BIUTIFUL. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for Best World Cinema - Dramatic at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Oxygen Tango School will lead a free tango lesson from 6:15 PM – 7:15 PM in the Egyptian courtyard.
