About the event
Homage to Universidad del Cine de Buenos Aires: Thirty Years of Storytelling
EL ESTUDIANTE / THE STUDENT
Santiago Mitre | Argentina | 2011 | Fiction | 110min
Roque is a directionless college dropout. Lacking anything better to do he re-enrolls in a Buenos Aires university, but once there he focuses more on the ladies than on his studies. In pursuit of one particular conquest, however, he is introduced to student politics and discovers he has a gift for wheeling and dealing. Soon, Roque is embroiled in a vicious cycle of backroom deals, shifting alliances and dog-eat-dog machinations that threaten him and his fellow students.
Q&A with Maria Marta Antin and Mario Santos, moderated by Professor Jerry Carlson
