Big Hell

Argentina (MIFF 2005, fiction)

Director: Venditti+Hofman

Riding a crowded bus, a man spies a white box, but while opening it he dies. The woman sitting in front of him steals the cursed box, linking her fate to its contents. This frantically charged short is emblematic of contemporary Argentinean cinema and is not to be missed.
