Roughneck / Boca de pozo

Boca de Pozo tells the story of Lucho, an oil worker in Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina.

A bit of a roughneck, he finds little enough outlet for his energies in this artificial city, which has been developed to serve the needs of industry, rather than those of its human population. He could leave, of course; but the pay is just too good.

This tense and gritty tale is Simon Franco’s sixth feature film. His marvelous “Not So Modern Times” was a huge draw at LLAFF 2012.
