Main program

The Student / Santiago Mitre

At first sight, this could be a tale of initiation: Roque, a young man from the interior, comes to Buenos Aires to attend college and, right when he seems interested only in meeting girls, he starts to get involved with politics and becoming a successful student representative. But, while focusing on the sole viewpoint of its lead character Roque, the film starts to unfold a vibrant story that opens up to different directions: utilitarian relationships, the oscillation between ethics and betrayal, politics as a generational issue, the youthful urge for getting quickly ahead, the perspective of a future that could either reproduce a rancid and corrupt past or imagine a different future.
