In the picturesque Argentinian countryside lives a family. While the head of the family, Pablo, is busy cultivating the land, his wife, Alejandra (Analía Couceyro, the favorite actress of the film’s director, Albertina Carri), gets involved in a passionate affair with their neighbor, Pichon. Alejandra’s mute daughter, Nati, who is friends with Pichon’s son, observes their less and less furtive encounters. She writes down what she sees and draws unsettling images that fall into Pablo’s hands. When he interprets this his own way, the temperature in this peaceful setting starts to rise—and the screen heats up as well, as Nati’s drawings are set in motion, creating a unique combination of live action and animation. With sensitive cinematography by Sol Lopatin, Anger (which took part in the Camerimage Festival competition) is a family and psychological drama and an erotic thriller all in one. The Argentinian wilderness is full of emotion, but you can pay a very high price to make your dreams come true.

One of the most important figures in new Argentinian cinema, Albertina Carri was born in Buenos Aires in 1973. Her debut at the age of 24, No quiero volver a casa, was shown at festivals in Rotterdam, London and Vienna. Her interest in animation resulted in her short film Aurora and the two-time FIPRESCI award winner Anger. Carri—a director, screenwriter, producer and visual artist—works with a variety of film genres, creating ambiguous works that are bursting with inventiveness.
