Matías Piñeiro, director of Viola and The Princess of France, continues his Shakespeare-inspired series with his most recent feature film. Partly inspired by the director’s own personal story, we follow Camila, a playwright who must work on a Spanish translation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a way to get art scholarship in New York. Soon, she is launched upon a series of dalliances, extraordinary encounters, delightful love detours, dead ends, and new beginnings. Locarno and Toronto Film Festivals, 2016.
