Overview

A portrait of several young women at the threshold of adulthood, feeling their way through various crises born of the insular comforts of class privilege.

Director

Gastón SOLNICKI

Gaston Solnicki began directing documentaries then proceeded to narrative films, and eventually merged the two. Solnicki conveys his narrative through elements such as a woman’s face, a building’s form, and the vitality of a season. His feature documentary, <i>Papirosen</i> (2011), unfolds his four-generation family history as a middle-class Jewish family in Argentina. This film highlights the relations between an individual’s life and history by stirring documentary-style distancing with personal confessions. His first feature narrative film, <i>Kekszakallu</i> (2016), portrays the mundane lives of impotent youth. <i>Introduzione all´Oscuro</i>, invited to this year’s Jeonju IFF, is dedicated to Hans Hurch of the Vienna International Film Festival who passed away two years ago. The film approaches human nature through the traces of place and landscape.
