There are a lot of big names coming to the Toronto International Film Festival, but it’s easy to forget that the festival is also a showcase for emerging filmmakers. And one director looking to make an impression this year is Isidora Marras, who will be unspooling her feature debut, “I Am Not Lorena,” and we’ve got the first trailer for the movie.
Starring Loreto Aravena, Paulina García, Maureen Junott, Lautaro Delgado, Gabriela Aguilera and Matías Oviedo, Marras co-wrote and directed this Kafkaesque thriller that follows an actress, Olivia, who finds herself in a peculiar position. She starts receiving phone calls from a collection agency looking for Lorena Ruiz, asking her to pay off a substantial debt. It’s a simple case of mistaken identity, but one that won’t go away, and soon even Olivia’s friends and family aren’t sure who she is, forcing her to track down the real Lorena and confront her.
Check out the trailer below, and keep your ear to the ground for this one.
