Pablo Trapero's The Clan to open 5th Argentine Film Festival, London this 18th August

The Argentine Film Festival, London is proud to announce that the festival will open its fifth edition this August with Pablo Trapero’s THE CLAN (El clan), the true-crime story of the seemingly respectable Puccio family in Argentina who in the early 1980s ran a lucrative family business kidnapping their wealthy neighbours for ransom.
 
The film will receive its London premiere on Thursday 18th August at Curzon Soho and will be attended by director Pablo Trapero.

THE CLAN is written and directed by Pablo Trapero (White Elephant, Carancho, Lion’s Den). It is produced by Pablo Trapero’s Matanza Cine in Argentina, along with producers Hugo Signman and Matías Mosteirin for K&S Films and Agustin and Pedro Almodóvar for El Deseo in Spain (the two production companies behind the BAFTA-winning Wild Tales). It is executive produced by Leticia Cristi and Pola Zito.
 
The cast is led by Guillermo Francella  (from the Oscar-winning The Secret in Their Eyes) as head of the family Arquimedes Puccio, with Peter Lanzani playing his son Alejandro, and Argentine actress Lili Popovich playing his wife Epifania.


Argentine Film Festival Programme 2016

THE CLAN is one of eight features to be screened at this year’s festival, which will run from 18-21 August across four London venues: Curzon Soho, Curzon Bloomsbury, Picturehouse Central and the Ritzy.  
 
Highlights of this year’s festival also include a special double bill of Pablo Trapero´s first two films: CRANE WORLD (Mundo grua) and EL BONAERENSE presented by the director, as well as another chance to see his acclaimed film CARANCHO starring Ricardo Darín.
 
Other features this year include the UK premiere of Ana Katz’s Sundance Special Jury Award Screenplay winner MY FRIEND FROM THE PARK (Mi amiga del parque), Érica Rivas (the bride from Wild Tales) in Ariel Rotter´s stylish character study INCIDENT LIGHT (La luz incidente), the multiple-Goya winning buddy dramedy TRUMAN starring Ricardo Darín and Javier Cámara and Nico Casavecchia´s charming US-Argentine English language romantic comedy FINDING SOFIA which will close the festival this year.
 
Wines will once again be supplied exclusively by Bodega Argento and Esquinas de Argento Malbec will be available across all bars at Picturehouse Central and the Ritzy, including a Punto Argento at the Ritzy, and at our partner restaurant La Patagonia
 
Further details on guests and special events will be announced shortly.
