Anti-Argentine Campaign / Campana Antiargentina

Leo J., a vapid, but immensely popular actor and singer, finds his champagne lifestyle interrupted when he inherits an old house. Searching through the dank and dilapidated ruins, he begins to uncover evidence of a sinister ‘Anti-Argentina Campaign’ that has dogged his own family, and the nation, over generations. Through a brilliantly balanced mix of slapstick, character comedy and political satire, the film critiques the notion of, ‘Campana Antiargentina’, which has been regularly resurrected ever since the era of the ‘Dirty War’, often to cover a multitude of sins. Yet, as we watch Leo J’s life descend into fear and obsession, we need to ask ourselves, ‘could it be true?’ As the Old Man of the Mountains put it ‘just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you’. Hilarious, queasy, unmissable.
