Red Carnations is based on a true story: driven by financial greed, a family torments their disabled daughter. After six seasons running, the camera reinvents the austere production, using fast-paced movements to create different spaces reflecting the zealous struggle of a lawyer to defend the young woman’s rights.
Who is normal in our society? What does it mean to be disabled? That is the question asked in Red Carnations, written and directed by Luis Agustoni (nominated for the Florencio Sanchez Award, 2013, in the National author category.)
The drama based on a true story shows us a family who, due to financial interests, are trying to declare their daughter incompetent in order to stop her from disposing of her assets to protect their estate.
The play stars Maria de Pablo Pardo (winner of the 2013 Maria Guerrero Incentive Award and 2013 Jorge Dubatti Spectator School Award), who plays Liliana Doblas, the daughter, and Santiago Rapela, the feisty lawyer who defends her amid the weakness of the justice system.
The cast also features Laura Accetta, Valeria Atienza, Ivana Cur, Matías Durini, Constanza Fossatti, Ana Luz Fürth, Pablo Gagliano, Leonardo PrestIa, Teresa Solana and Luis Troncoso, with costumes and stage design by Nadia Casaux, and lighting by Ramiro Galmes.

A Piece of Plastic
German avant-garde theater brings us “A Piece of Plastic”, playing upon the premise of family as artificial as the theater. A fast-moving play that takes place between slamming doors and that bitterly criticizes society with an acid sense of humor. Our cameras take everything in with settings that bring us closer to the most dizzying expressions.
The Omission of the Coleman Family
Written and directed by Claudio Tolcachir, the play about a family where conflicting relations build a permanent atmosphere of tension in their lives has been praised both locally and overseas. Revolving around a grandmother who shields them from the surrounding chaos, each family member is constantly struggling to survive.
La Nona (The Grandmother)
Premiered during the military regime, La Nona is a metaphor for a devastated country. Written by Roberto Cossa, one of Argentina’s most important playwrights, this grotesque, slightly absurd tragicomedy featuring a ravenous elderly woman, hits the screen with its entire overwhelming universe.
