Matias Piñeiro present "THE STOLEN MAN" at MOMA

Post date: 20/08/2021

EL HOMBRE ROBADO / THE STOLEN MAN
2007. Argentina. Written and directed by Matías Piñeiro. With María Villar, Romina Paula. In Spanish; English subtitles. 91 min. 
Before he became celebrated for his contemporary reimaginings of Shakespeare’s plays—including his latest film, Isabella (in theatrical release on August 27)—the Argentine writer-director Matías Piñeiro made his feature debut with this New Wave–inspired comedy about Bohemian middle-class youth in Buenos Aires, an enchanting story of fickle friendships and fleeting romances, of purloined museum artifacts and the texts and deeds of the 19th-century historical figure Domingo Augusto Sarmiento brought mysteriously to life. Shot in grainy, almost fugitive 16mm black and white, The Stolen Man wears its literary and cinematic references lightly, announcing the arrival of a filmmaker who playfully interweaves games of the mind and heart, the literary and the performative, and the authentic and the counterfeit.

Thursday, August 26, 8:30. MoMA Sculpture Garden
Virtual Cinema, August 27–September 3
