Argentinian filmmaker Juan Schnitman is heading to the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival to world premiere his emotional relationship drama “El Incendio,” starring Pilar Gamboa and Juan Barberini as lovers caught in a 24-hour whirlwind of life-changing moments.
The film’s official synopsis reads, “On the way to closing the contract on their first home, Lucia and Marcelo withdraw $100,000 in cash from their bank. The seller can’t make it to the signing, and it gets postponed to the next day. Frustrated, they head back to their old place and put the money away. The next 24 hours will unveil the true nature of their love, the crisis they are in and the violence within themselves.”
If that dramatically ripe storyline doesn’t sell the high stakes, the new trailer for the film certainly will. Featuring intimate handheld shots and previewing two rich performances from Gamboa and Barberini, this stirring trailer should get everyone excited for the film’s upcoming premiere.
“El Incendio” will premiere February 6 in Berlin’s Panorama Section.
